5. Toronto Public Health has given the following COVID 19 Guidance to TJCAC as a Place of Worship, updated Oct 1, 2021 regarding indoor congregational singing: “Indoor group singing, dancing and use of wind instruments has been linked to numerous outbreaks in multiple countries.  Limit the number of performers or vocalists. Avoid group or congregational singing.”  The EB noted that this is a Guidance and not a Law.  Therefore, while TJCAC will encourage full compliance with Toronto Public Health Guidance, we will not be enforcing the “avoid congregational singing” guidance, provided that masks are worn indoors.
