COVID Safety Protocol for In-Person Attendance 

Meeting In-Person & Online

CBMG now offers a hybrid model for attendance at our weekly practice – you can either join us in-person or remotely via Zoom every week, unless announced otherwise (on certain Sundays we may meet online-only – please watch out for weekly announcements).

For those attending in-person, please adhere to the following COVID safety protocols. And please note that we may update these protocols at any point at the discretion of the CBMG’s Board and/or to be in compliance with any new mandates.

Vaccination Proof Required for In-Person Attendance

  • In-person attendees must be vaccinated with the primary series as well as at least one booster shot of COVID-19 vaccines
  • Proof of vaccination is required before you attend in-person for the first time:
    • Please bring your vaccination card (or a photo of it) and show it to our volunteers before entering the building for the first time 
    • Alternatively, you may email hello@chicagomeditation.org to set up a private Zoom meeting to show your proof of vaccination ahead of time (we can also accommodate FaceTime calls or WhatsApp video chat)

Masks

  • Masks are optional but encouraged for in-person attendees
  • Disposable surgical face masks (as well as hand sanitizer) will be provided for those who wish to use them

Social Distancing

  • During meditation, cushions will be placed six feet apart if there is enough room to do so
  • However, maintaining social distancing during group discussions and other activities can be challenging. We respectfully ask all participants to please be mindful of others’ comfort levels in this matter and honor their wishes for social distancing, if any

Do Not Attend In-Person, If…

  • You do not feel well, or
  • You have tested positive for COVID – if so, please do not attend in-person for at least ten days after receiving the positive test result or first exhibiting symptoms, or
  • You believe or know that you have recently been exposed to COVID – if so, please do not attend in-person for at least ten days after the date of last exposure.

Join us remotely via Zoom instead! We will continue to offer the online option for all our meetings.
