Health and Safety Precautions
In response to COVID-19, all fall circles will have a ratio twelve participants with 2 guides. We will no longer have shared meals or snacks. While all programs take place outdoors, participants and staff will comply with updated CDC recommendations for health and safety. (Read our complete COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan.) Each program will have 2 extra sessions scheduled in both fall and spring semesters, as some cancellations will likely be necessary due to rain, wildfire smoke, COVID-19, or other unforeseen circumstances. If it becomes unsafe to meet outdoors, programming will move temporarily online, program time will be reduced by 30 mins, and staff will provide meaningful and connective content through Zoom.
