Covid-19 Policy

All guests must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 and present proof of Covid-19 vaccination upon registration. Attendees must keep current with any booster requirements as outlined by CDC officials and are required to present updated vaccination proof by May 31, 2022. We will continuously monitor recommendations by local, state, city, country, and the CDC, and update our policy accordingly. Guests will be responsible for adhering to any changes in Covid-19 guidelines as the virus and infection landscape changes 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 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.
