Thursday Updates from Achiezer
July 09, 2020
Dear Community,

To follow up on our prior correspondence, with the Covid-19 pandemic still very much at the forefront of our minds, we continue to closely monitor any new infections within the community as well as keep a close eye on any potential outbreaks or clusters of infection. As the several new infections are cause for concern, it is necessary to exercise caution and stay safe.

The reports from both New York City and Nassau County governments have certainly been encouraging. As previously mentioned, we must continue to do our part in stopping the spread. Whether this means to wear masks, monitor one's health carefully, or to quarantine when arriving from a "hot spot," these collective measures can make all the difference.

The purpose of this email is to inform the community that, after consultation with medical advisory and government officials, both of our office locations in Far Rockaway and the Five Towns have now safely re-opened. While Achiezer was never "closed" throughout this difficult period, we do feel that our actual presence in the offices will enable us to more efficiently service the community.

As a general reminder, below is the contact information for the various departments within our organization:
