Dear HTOS community,
We hope you and your family are enjoying a relaxing and healthy summer.
HTOS executive committee has been working on logistics for reopening and is happy to announce that starting August 1st temple will be open on Saturday and Sunday from 10AM to 1PM.
In sticking to our mission of providing a place of worship and being the spiritual resource center for the Hindu community, we are establishing few strict guidelines for devotees planning to visit the temple.
- A face covering is required to visit the temple. For those of you that arrive at the temple with out a face covering, we are planning to make masks available at the temple for at will donation.
- Sanitizers will be placed at the temple entrance. All visitors are encouraged to apply sanitizers to hands on entry.
- Devotees are expected to follow the guidelines posted in the temple to practice social distancing and not touching the deities. Please do your part in helping with COVID-19 prevention.
- For those of you at home, we do plan to live stream the poojas on our HTOS Facebook account around 10:30 A.M. on the days temple is open.
- If you would like to volunteer at the temple to open/close and assist the priest. please sign up at https://www.signupgenius.
Our expectation is that the COVID-19 pandemic will challenge our temple operations throughout the 2020 and potentially 2021. Until the time pandemic is contained, we are implementing new procedures and will be constantly evaluating the temple operations.
