The BWC Health and Safety Committee, along with the staff, are looking forward to bringing our community back together in a manner that is safe, meaningful, accessible, and inclusive. We want to emphasize that we are working hard to keep our members safe AND we want to create practices that also help end the COVID-19 global pandemic.
As we believe our liberation is bound to all others, so must our health be bound to all others. For this reason, we will be considering the effects of how our actions affect not just ourselves but the global community. Using the lessons learned from the pandemic, we are working to make programming accessible at home and in person. BWC has installed air filters to improve air quality, as well as new audio/visual equipment to allow for hybrid in-person and remote meetings and events in the Webster St. building.
We are using recommendations from the CDC, Massachusetts Department of Public Health, Brookline School Departments, and consulting with local congregations to guide our planning.
Here are the current guidelines for our building:
- Masks & social distancing are encouraged.
- Vaccinations are required for all those who are eligible.
- Committees may now host meetings in the BWC building. Before scheduling a meeting, co-chairs must be trained on building use policies and the use of tech for hybrid meetings.
- Our building is open to full capacity. For any event over 50 people, we will discuss Covid precautions ahead of time.
- For all in-person meetings or events, attendees' contact information will be collected.
- Shule is taking place in-person at the Runkle school. We are following Brookline Public School guidelines and the latest guidance on COVID safety. For Shule safety questions, contact email@example.com.
