You can view the full current Summer 2021 Covid-19 Safety Plan as of 06.15.21 (1) here.  WFC is using an abundance of caution to ensure everyone’s health and safety.

Arrivals

Having a full dose of COVID vaccine completed two weeks before your arrival date is strongly recommended. A negative Covid-19 PCR lab result, from a test taken within 72 hours before arrival, will be required to be onsite, including children and those who are vaccinated. If you are unable to get a screening test where you are located, please contact covidsafety@worldfellowship.org at least 14 days in advance of scheduled arrival

Multiple Mitigation Strategy

Every form of virus prevention, including vaccination, has imperfections. This is why  testing, masking and distancing are still essential procedures in a responsable plan. WFC is deeply committed to keeping our staff and guests safe, and has consulted with public health officials and local guidancein creating these policies.

Many of our staff members accepted their contracts only after recieving security of knowing that their will be universal masking and routine testing.  Following these procedures allows us to keep our commitment to the comfort and safety of our staff.

 

Rentals

Instead of offering individual room rentals, established pods can rent an entire building to themselves or individuals and families will be matched into pods. A pod is a core group of friends or family who agree to limit their in-person social activities to only each other,  and practice all COVID precaution measures with anyone outside the group. Rentals are available for groups of 1-15. Contact office@worldfellowship.org for more information on rental options or to reserve your stay.

 

Dining

Dining will be on the LLoyd Lodge Porch by pod group.  Tables will be pre-set to minimize unmasked contact with our staff. We will strive to share as many meal-time traditions as possible, continuing to provide delicious, wholesome food and delightful daily announcements around meal times.

On Site Practices

-For both staff and guests, masks completely covering mouth and nose are required everywhere inside buildings except when they are in their designated guest Pod Zone or staff room.

-Masks are required outside when there is a likelihood of an extended conversation with another human with whom you are not podded.

-Safe physical distancing is required with anyone with whom you are not podded. We define that as 8 (eight) feet between your mouth and their mouth. To be clear, that means non-podded people cannot get close enough to pass items directly between them.

-Hand sanitizer will be available at all principal entrances to all buildings.

Programming

On-site (outdoors and distanced) programming will generally be offered Wednesdays at 4pm and Saturdays at 10am. Fun Night will be online Fridays at 7:30, and a virtual program will be Mondays at 7:30.

Recreation Coordinator, Howie Fain, will be leading hike and bike outings, and there will be morning Children’s Fellowship outdoors for 3 – 10 year-olds when it is not raining.

Coming Back Together

The pandemic has been full of difficulty, loss, and sacrifice. Nearly everyone is bearing stress. This is a year that has been nourished by going more slowly and being more conscious.

WFC will offer an abundance of opportunities for restorative time in the mountains and at the pond. There will be time for informal sharing and self-guided activities. You can enjoy space to let your mind and your body wander, play, and enjoy rest and relaxation! Let’s enjoy sharing the path to gathering safely with an abundance of care for the first time in over a year.

Thank you for bringing your patience, kindness, and sense of community to the 2021 summer season!
