A NOTE ABOUT OUR COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS:
In order to do our best to protect against the spread of COVID-19, below is our current policy in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. These precautions are subject to change based off of state and CDC recommendations at the time of the retreat.
Temperature Checks: We will have a mandatory temperature check upon arrival to Maryhill Renewal Center prior to checking in. If a fever is detected, we will not be able to allow you to attend. Additionally, we will have a daily temperature check each morning of the retreat.
Face Mask Policy: Face masks will be required indoors at all times, except for when eating, drinking, showering, or sleeping. Face masks are optional outdoors as long as social distance is maintained. Retreat speakers and musicians, while performing their duties at sessions, Mass, etc, will not be required to wear face masks.
Social Distancing: We ask that social distance be maintained as much as possible throughout the duration of the retreat.
Regular Cleaning and Disinfecting: All common areas will be regularly cleaned and disinfected before and after use. Hand sanitizer will be available in common areas.
PLEASE NOTE: While we will do our best to minimize the risk of the spread of COVID-19, there is no such thing as no risk. It is up to you to discern your decision to attend. ECHO is a retreat rooted in authentic relationships with God and with the community. We are on the journey alongside you as we discover how we can bring together the reality of “social distance” with real connection. We strive to do everything we can to preserve these opportunities for authentic community, while at the same time keeping everyone safe. However, there is never no risk involved. As we say often, love looks forward! We will rely on everyone’s help to love one another well by abiding by the precautions, while at the same time encouraging everyone to take advantage of all the opportunities to grow in friendship and community.
