• Thank you for taking the time to familiarise yourself with the NSNS risk mitigation
    strategy introduced to reduce the risk of Covid-19 spread at our in-person events. In
    line with current government guidance, masks and social distancing are now optional
    at NSNS. We will continue to monitor the situation and will update our policy as
  • Do not attend the event if you’re feeling unwell or have tested positive
    for Covid-19: We encourage you to err on the side of caution and stay at
    home if you feel you might be coming down with something. If you are unsure,
    we encourage you to do a lateral flow test before attending in-person events.
    Current NHS guidance suggests that someone who has tested positive for
    Covid-19 avoids contact with other people for 5 days, and avoid meeting
    people with higher risk from Covid-19 for 10 days. Some members of our
    community at at higher risk from Covid-19 and we ask that you bear this in
    mind. More information can be found here:
  • Our seats are laid out with varying levels of space in between them. This
    means that you can sit close to other congregants, or can choose to sit further
    away from others if you prefer.
  •  Dress warmly: Windows will be open to promote air flow and circulation. This
    means the venue might get colder and it’s better to come overdressed.
  •  Aliyot: We have returned to having aliyot from the Bimah for those who wish.
    You can also do your aliyah from where you are sitting if you prefer.
  • Kiddush will be served after the service:  It is not possible to guarantee
    social distancing during Kiddush and congregants will naturally use this time
    to socialise. If you are particularly anxious about Covid-19 transmission
    please feel free to leave before Kiddush.
  •  Children: We are happy to welcome children and babies back fully into our
  •  When in doubt, ask: We have a team of volunteers who can answer
    questions related to Covid-19 safety on the day. Please talk to them when in doubt
