Update 31/12/21: Due to the increased case numbers of covid currently, the new variant, the time needed to roll out booster shots, and some concern within the sangha, we have decided for now to return to requiring everyone at the centre to be double vaccinated (unless they have a medical exemption as per masks). This will apply for retreats as well.
