Dear Mikvah Guests,

Firstly, I hope that this letter finds you and your family safe and healthy!!

The Mei Menachem Western Well Mikvah is taking the following steps to keep our guests healthy and safe in light of the current situation.  We have consulted with Rabbis and other Mikva'os to help us formulate our new protocol.  Please be vigilant about following them.

  • All preparation will be done at home including your final shower.  No onsite preparation will be allowed until further notice
  • Each guest will re-comb her hair upon arrival and will be responsible to check herself thoroughly for any intervening substances.  The attendant will not do the checking at this time.  
  • Everyone brings her own towel and/or robe (and head-covering if she wishes).  We have available individually wrapped disposable slippers and combs for those who would like.
  • The guest will remove her towel or robe herself.  The attendant will make sure the immersion is Kosher and she will leave the Mikvah room before the guest comes out.
  • If you have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus, you may not use the Mikvah until you have been cleared by a doctor and checked with us.
  • If  you have been in contact with anyone who has tested positive and/or meet the criteria for mandatory quarantine, you may not use the Mikvah for 14 days from the time of exposure.  This also applies to people who have traveled on a flight, or a cruise, or have been instructed according to CDC guidelines to self quarantine for any reason.
  • If you have even a slight fever, please do not use the Mikvah.  If you are unsure if you have a fever, you must take your temperature to check before coming.
  • We ask any guest who develops a confirmed case of COVID-19 within 14 days of their Mikvah visit, to please notify Chanie Fogelman Immediately so that we can take additional steps to ensure the safety of our guests.

On our end, we are being scrupulous with sanitizing surfaces after each appointment - from the entry door handles all the way in.  Mikvah attendants are wearing gloves and changing gloves in between appointments.

We thank you for working with us to keep our community safe and healthy!  For any further questions, please reach out to Chanie Fogelman by leaving a message on the mikvah line at 508-647-4855.  We will continue to consult with Rabbis and medical professionals as things unfold. 

Wishing you all a Happy and Kosher Pesach,
