In-person Covid-19 Safety Measures

TNI is happy to welcome folks back to in-person retreats. While we are excited to be connecting again in person, the safety of the sangha and our communities remains our priority.

COVID-19 Triple Vaccination Requirement
Beginning with our June retreat, we ask that all participants be fully vaccinated and be prepared to provide proof of triple vaccination during check-in for in-person TNI retreats. Boosters are now required.

Before you arrive:

We ask that you stay home if you have:

• Any of the following symptoms (fever, chills, shortness of breath, new muscle aches or headache, sore throat, new or worsening cough) or feel unwell in any other way.

• Travelled outside of Canada in the last 14 days.

• Close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

When you arrive:

• Face coverings, specifically surgical or N95/KN95 masks, are required in all shared spaces indoors, including the meditation hall. Given the changing nature of the COVID-19 environment, we must currently adhere to this guideline without exception. We ask individuals who would require an exception for medical reason or disability to delay attending an onsite retreat until we’re able to relax some of the protocols.

• Bring and plan to wear face masks at the retreat, except when in your room and in the actual act of eating and drinking.
• Maintain at least 6 feet of physical distance whenever possible.
• Arrive early to help ease the check-in line.
• Meditation hall: everyone is required to wear a mask in the hall.
• You may be asked to leave the retreat if you do not properly wear your mask.
