To the Chabad of Puerto Vallarta community,

Please find important information and guidance regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) below. Chabad of Puerto Vallarta is committed to the wellbeing of all of our Congregants. Much of this is straightforward guidance and not unusual in terms of precautionary measures. We are here to help, so if you or one of your family members are not well, please let us know so we can be there for you.

At a time like this, when tension and stress may be elevated, the fabric of community keeps us strong. Please see how you can increase in acts of compassion and support for people in the community, who may need them more now than ever.

With prayerful wishes for good health for all,

Rabbi Hecht

How can I help protect myself? The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
  • Get your flu shot — it’s not too late.

What are the symptoms of COVID-19? Patients with COVID-19 have had mild to severe respiratory illness with symptoms of:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath

If you are sick, to keep from spreading respiratory illness to others, you should:

  • Contact your health care provider for guidance.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

COVID-19 cases have reached the point where state and local public health authorities have decide to implement:

  • Temporary closures or dismissals of childcare facilities and schools;
  • Other social distancing measures that increase the physical space between people, including:
    1. Workplace social distancing measures, such as replacing in-person meetings with teleworking; and
    2. Modifying, postponing, or cancelling mass gatherings.
