In the event of a Covid or other health emergency prior to the start of the retreat, we will continuously monitor recommendations by local, state, city, country, and the CDC, and update attendees accordingly. Guests will be responsible for adhering to any changes in guidelines and must agree to any and all measures necessary to keep the health and welfare of the other guests, Mark Matousek Media staff, and the retreat center staff safe. We will have home tests and information on local Covid-19 testing sites, if the need to test arises. Any positive results will require isolation and quarantine at the expense of the guest.
