COVID Policy

Last updated: 11.8.22

Resident COVID Policy 11.8.22  – This policy only applies to KCL Residents

FOR OVERNIGHT STAY/RETREATS:

  • You must be fully vaccinated (including at least one booster shot).*
  • Take a negative PCR (preferable) or rapid test 48 hours before arrival. Send a picture of the results to covid-test-results@karmecholing.org
  • Take a rapid test upon arrival (bring with you if possible).
  • If you have a cough or any flu-like symptoms, or if you have been in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID within 7 days of your arrival, please reschedule your visit.
  • In the few days before your arrival, please be very careful about limiting your exposure.
    • Avoid indoor, crowded spaces if possible.
    • If that is not possible, for example while traveling, wear a N95 mask.
    • If you have been in a high-risk COVID situation in the days before your arrival, for example working at a hospital or attending a large indoor concert, we will ask you to take a rapid test daily during your stay and consider masking for the safety of the group.
  • If you become sick or exhibit symptoms while at KCL we will require you to mask, even if you test negative for COVID. 

FOR DAY VISITORS:

  • Stay masked while inside all buildings.
  • To join for lunch and unmask indoors, we require proof of vaccination and a rapid test upon arrival. You will be required to test once per visit day.  
  • If you have a cough or any flu-like symptoms, or if you have been in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID within the last 7 days, please reschedule your visit.

 

As our protocols continue to evolve, check this site periodically. If you have further questions, please contact info@karmecholing.org

If you contract COVID while in a program/staying overnight at KCL:

  • KCL will ask you to return home as soon as possible. Until you can depart your retreat, you will be asked to quarantine in your room/ a room assigned to you for 5 days (eating meals in your room, bathing in single-use bathrooms, and masking indoors) and you will be asked to mask indoors for a total of 10 days from the onset of symptoms or/and positive COVID test. (ex. Day you test positive = Day 0, next day = Day 1)


* If full vaccination is not an option, please contact info@karmecholing.org at least 72 hours before your arrival. In addition to the procedures above, you will be required to wear a N95 mask during your stay, provide a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 48 hours of arrival, AND follow a personal quarantine 48 hours before arriving on site.
