COVID Update: 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.

Effective Saturday, 14th August 2021, only fully vaccinated persons will be allowed inside the temple. Children, under 12, who are not vaccinated will not be permitted inside the temple for now; in view of the increasing risk for these children to contact the Delta variant of COVID 19.

More details and complete guidelines can be viewed here.

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 form, 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.

More details and complete guidelines can be viewed here.

Weekdays – 8 am to 10 am and 6 pm to 8 pm
Weekends and Statutory Holidays – 8 am to 11.00 am and 5 pm to 8 pm

President's Message

Dear devotees, volunteers, office bearers and all well-wishers of the temple,

These are difficult times. The COVID 19 pandemic is in another phase and the Delta variant has been most threatening especially to our children under 12 for whom the world is yet to formulate and implement a vaccination plan! Other unvaccinated individuals as well immune compromised and elderly are also at high risk and vulnerable.

Our aim is to PROTECT OUR CHILDREN, who are the future of our temple!
