Coronavirus SSP Update
In light of COVID-19 declared as national emergency we as a community and volunteer driven organization would like to adhere by the Santa Clara County recommendations of avoiding gathering and limit the community exposure of any sort. As a volunteer driven organization safety and health of our volunteers and devotees is of prime importance.
In the light of the above , SSP Board has decided to close the temple for public from Sunday March 15 up to March 28, 2020, however we will continue to perform all 4 Aratis and rituals to Baba with the help of assigned slot volunteers without any interruption.
We will be monitoring the situation on a regular basis over these 2 weeks and provide updates if anything changes . In the meantime we are working on making live streaming available for all our devotees to take part in the Arati rituals. In this difficult time let us all pray Baba that he takes care of all of us and the COVID pandemic ends at the earliest.
We regret the inconvenience caused and humbly request your support and cooperation during this time.
Coronavirus COVID-19 ALERT General Guidelines
*Disclaimer: Please note that the following are only general guidelines and should NOT be substituted for a doctor’s advice. Devotees are requested to follow up with their own practitioners for further advice.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Stay home when you are sick.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.*
