UPDATE 8/22/2020: Gurdwara is now open. We have an outdoor tent where programs take place and all covid-19 prevention protocols are adhered to. This has been approved by Santa Clara County officials.
Dear Sangat Ji (Congregation)
Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh (Sikh Greeting)
We are sorry to report that some members of Gurdwara staff have been infected with Corona Virus. Gurdwara Committee is taking steps to ensure safety of the staff and the congregation. In view of this, the Committee requests all not to come to the Gurdwara Sahib.
You can listen to the programs at home on the Gurdwara app or Facebook Live.
The first case was detected on 6/12/2020. That person was admitted to the hospital and person close to him was quarantined. The committee had the Gurdwara premises disinfected.
From 6/12-6/14 the committee had all the staff members tested for Covid-19. Unfortunately quite a few of them have since tested positive. They are in quarantine and separated from the healthy ones. Arrangements are being made for their comfort and treatment.
We request cooperation from everyone not to come to the Gurdwara. Please share this with your family and friends and let them know of the situation. Gurdwara Sahib will stay closed until further notice.
In Service of Sangat,
Sikh Gurdwara San Jose Management
