Covid-19 Policies for The 2023 Program Season

May 7, 2023

In setting our Covid Policy, our view is to be as inclusive as possible, while attempting to minimize the risk of Covid entering the retreat mandala. We ask you to please comply with these guidelines. We aim to ensure our faculty and guests feel relaxed and protected. However, we cannot guarantee you will not be exposed during your visit.

The policy set out below will be in place for the foreseeable 2023 Program Season at Dorje Denma Ling.

  1. Monitor yourself: please don’t come if you have symptoms resembling Covid or if you are generally unwell in any way.
  2. In the few days before your arrival, please be careful about limiting your exposure. Avoid indoor and outdoor, crowded spaces if possible. If that is not possible, wear an N95 mask. Note: If you know you have been exposed to Covid within 5 days of arrival, we ask that you cancel your visit. We will give you a full refund.
  3. Take a negative PCR (preferable) or rapid test 48 hours before arrival. Send a picture of the results to [email protected].
  4. Take a rapid test upon arrival. Please bring a test for yourself and as many extra tests as possible for donation. We very much appreciate donated tests, which we will keep on the land in case of need.
  5. Local guests who develop symptoms while on the land will be asked to leave. Otherwise, we will provide a space to isolate from others. If symptoms have improved after five days you may rejoin the program.

Please check this site periodically as our protocols continue to evolve. There may also be program-specific considerations requiring variations to the policy, which we will communicate. If you have further questions, contact [email protected].
