Covid-19 Reopening Plan

We know our sangha is excited to get back to regular services and classes. If we can all follow these guidelines for the time being, we will be able to continue to slowly reopen. We aim to do no harm to self and others, and if we can continue to be diligent in our efforts, it will allow us to take future steps.

Our role in keeping people healthy:

  • Common surfaces and seating will be sanitized before and after a session.
  • Only one restroom will be available, it will be sanitized before and after a session.
  • All persons in the center must wear appropriate masks that cover the nose and mouth. Replacement masks will be available if the need arises.

  • Tea and water will not be available during this time.
