COVID Updates: Revised Operating Guidelines
New Temple Entry Restrictions
Given the changing COVID situation, it has unfortunately become necessary to adopt more stringent entry requirements so that we can safely continue providing services that are currently available at the temple.
The temple remains open for the convenience of our devotees with restricted entry following recent Public Health Recommendations and the advice of the temple’s medical advisory committee to ensure the safety of the devotees, staff, volunteers and the priests.

Self declaration form
It has become increasingly difficult to obtain volunteers to conduct in person screening before entering the temple. Hence, we are implementing a “self declaration” to screen devotees before entering the temple. We request your sincere cooperation in completing this questionnaire 24-48 hours before entering the temple to ensure that the most recent information is being provided. A printed copy of this questionnaire [download, sign, bring to temple] signed by the devotee who has registered online should be brought to the temple and handed to the personnel at the entrance of the temple. We are actively discouraging walk-in’s at this time.
We are planning to engage personnel from a human resources company until the volunteer shortage is resolved. They will be responsible to collect the forms at the door and ensure that the guidelines are being adhered to.
