Koboji maintains a culture of indoor masking. Wearing well-fitted quality masks significantly reduces the risk of transmission.
Because COVID-19 is mainly transmitted through the air, it is essential to improve air quality and ventilation to make indoor gatherings safer. The temple hall and downstairs social hall are open-air. Additionally, Corsi-Rosenthal Boxes built by volunteers are used to increase airflow and filtration.
We encourage members to stay home if unwell. Temperature checks at the door are requested so that those with symptoms can excuse themselves. Most services are streamed online for those unable or who chose not to attend in-person.
None of these strategies are meant to stand alone. Combined, they offer layers of precaution that support the safety and inclusion for the temple community.
