We will provide contract tracing. If you or a member of your family becomes ill with COVID-19 like symptoms or tests positive for COVID-19 within 7 days after attending a CBI Program, we respectfully ask you to report this information to our CBI administrator, the Rabbi, or a Board member as soon as possible.  The information you provide will be handled with discretion, but it is necessary so that we can make others who also attended aware.
