Berakhot 3:4: A Ba’al Keri [someone subject to a certain form of ritual impurity] should recite Shema in his mind and should not bless [its blessings whatsoever], not before and not after it. And on food he should bless after it and not bless before it. Rabbi Yehudah says: He should bless before and after them [Shema and food].

בעל קרי מהרהר בלבו ואינו מברך, לא לפניה ולא לאחריה. ועל
המזון מברך לאחריו ואינו מברך לפניו. רבי יהודה אומר מברך לפניהם ולאחריהם.

Berakhot 3:5: If he was standing in prayer and remembered that he is a Ba’al Keri, he should not stop, but rather abridge [the prayer]. If he went down to immerse [himself], if he is able to go up and to cover himself and to recite [Shema] before and do it before sunrise, he should go up and cover himself and recite. And if not, he should cover himself in water and recite. But he should not cover himself in foul waters and not in waters of soaking [flax] until he puts [more] water into them. And how far must he distance himself from them and from excrement? Four cubits.

היה עומד בתפלה ונזכר שהוא בעל קרי, לא יפסיק אלא יקצר.ירד
לטבול, אם יכול לעלות ולהתכסות ולקרות עד שלא תנץ החמה, יעלה ויתכסה ויקרא.
ואם לאו יתכסה במים ויקרא. אבל לא יתכסה, לא במים הרעים ולא במי המשרה, עד
שיטיל לתוכן מים. וכמה ירחיק מהם ומן הצואה? ארבע אמות.
