Covid safety measures for retreat and Sangha meetings

Dear Sangha, it is always our wish to protect the health our our members and community. In light of the fact that we have many elderly members, the high transmissibility of the Delta variant, the fact that Bernalillo County is currently listed as a red (high transmission rate) county and cases are rising, we will be using the following protective measures.

For both the retreat and Sangha in-person meetings we are asking for all participants to be vaccinated, to wear masks, and to maintain social distancing. Hopefully this will allow us to gather and practice while minimizing risk. All are welcome to attend Sangha meetings via Zoom.
