תפילה קודם תפילה בציבור
יְהִי רָצוֹן מִלְפָנֶיךָ
שֶׁלֹא יִתְבּוֹדֵד שׁוּם אָדָם בְּסִבָּתִי,
וְלֹא אֶתְבּוֹדֵד אֲנִי בְּסִבָּתָם.
May it be your will
that no one be quarantined because of my actions,
and that I not be quarantined through the fault of others.
וְהַרְחִיקֵנִי מִכַּף כׇּל מְאֻמָּת
וְסָפֵק מְאֻמָּת.
And may you distance me from anyone who is verified [as a carrier of the virus] 
and from anyone possibly verified [as a carrier].
וְהַרְחִיקֵנִי מִמַּכְחִישׁ קוֹרוֹנָה.
And may you distance me from any denier of the coronavirus.
וְאַל תְּבִיאֵנִי לִידֵי שְׁנֵי מֶטְרִים מִבַּעַל תַּסְמִינִים,
בֵּין שֶׁהוּא עִם מַסֵּכָה וּבֵין שֶׁאֵינוֹ עִם מַסֵּכָה,
וּמִדִּינוֹ שֶׁל בִּידוּד.
And may you not bring me within a distance of two meters of anyone with symptoms,
whether they are wearing a mask or whether they are not wearing a mask,
and from anyone required to isolate.

Rabbi Binyamin Holtzman first published this prayer via his Facebook page. The translation in to English was made by Louis Polisson in our Facebook discussion group, with edits suggested by Hannah Katsman and Yael Schweid.
