COVID-19 PROTOCOLS

As Houston's COVID-19 spike is at a sustained decline, our medical advisor has determined that it would be safe at this time to open the men's mikvah for daily use. Please be aware that at any time we may need to close the mikvah in a short moment's notice.

All mikvah members have had their access cards restored. Those without mikvah cards can access the mikvah through visiting the front office. The office is operating on very limited hours, so call ahead to be sure the times the office will be open that day.

Please adhere to the following guidelines. Only with your cooperation will we be allowed to keep the mikvah open:

  • No more than 2 people or one family unit are allowed in the mikvah building at one time.
  • If upon entry there are still two people in Mikvah, please exit and wait at least six feet away from the exit for at least one occupant to leave.
  • Only one person should be on either side of the dressing room divider.
  • Wear your mask as much as possible, even while undressing and dressing.
  • Minimize conversation as much as possible, if at all.
  • Only use the right mikvah pool, the one that is nearest to the shower room. The other pool should not be used.
  • Those who are over 65 should consult their doctor before use.
  • Every mikvah visitor assumes all risks.
  • Mikvah membership and visit fees remain the same.

Please realize that a move towards opening the Men's Mikvah in time for Chodesh Elul, should not be taken as an indicator that now is the time to be lax in general with the health guidelines to keep yourself and the most vulnerable in our community safe. Please continue to minimize physical interaction with others, physically distance, wear a mask and wash hands regularly.
