COVID-19 Safety Guidelines

In the interest of keeping our community as safe as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Temple of Witchcraft board of directors has instituted the following guidelines for in-person Temple events:


The Temple strongly encourages everyone to maintain up-to-date vaccinations, and to be fully vaccinated, as much as medically possible. Proof of vaccination or vaccination status are not required to attend public, in-person Temple events.


Masking is not required at Temple events, but is welcome. Individuals should feel free to mask as suits their needs and comfort. Please respect those who choose to wear masks and always ask for and wait to receive permission before entering someone’s personal space or interacting closely with them, regardless of whether or not they are masking.

Personal Responsibility

If you feel at all unwell or exhibit any symptoms, please do not attend public events! (Even if you think it’s “just allergies.”) Likewise, if you know you have been exposed to Covid-19 within the past two weeks, please do not attend public events. Please test as-needed to know your status.

Temple staff reserves the right to deny entry to anyone exhibiting symptoms of illness or to ask them to leave an event at our discretion for the safety of all concerned. Please respect these decisions made by Temple staff and, better yet, don’t put us in the position to have to make them.

Attendance Limits

To facilitate distancing, the Temple currently requires in-person venues to be limited to 70-75% of their normal capacity. For the Upper Village Hall in Derry, this is currently 70. For the Temple teaching space at Grandview, this is 15. These numbers include any staff, facilitators, or the like—the total number of people in the space. Please account for this in event registration. Attendees, please respect everyone’s distancing and personal space.

Distance Events

The above guidelines apply to all Temple of Witchcraft events held in New Hampshire, either at the Temple’s Grandview property or at rental properties such as the Upper Village Hall. Be aware that the Temple may choose to change this policy as-needed based on community safety and well-being. Please check this page prior to attending events.

The Temple Board recognizes that conditions and needs may vary locally, and so encourages facilitators of Temple events outside of the greater New Hampshire area to follow these guidelines, but facilitators may use their own discretion and best judgment when it comes to modifying them to best suit the safety and needs of their community.
