The purpose of this policy is to minimize transmission of the COVID-19 virus within our community by providing protection to those who attend in-person Temple of Witchcraft events and the staff and volunteers offering service. Vaccinations and face masks are required for all in-person events by staff and attendees.
This policy is effective immediately and shall remain in effect until such time as the Temple of Witchcraft’s Board of Directors issues an updated policy to reflect any changes.
All attendees will be required to present their vaccination card and a picture ID upon entering an in-person Temple event. It is the responsibility of the attendee to ensure they are fully vaccinated and have a physical record of their vaccination prior to registering for an event.
The Center for Disease Control states that a person is fully vaccinated:
- 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or …
- 2 weeks after a single dose such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine
If you have underlying conditions or are taking medications that weaken your immune system, you may not be fully protected even after you are fully vaccinated or have received a booster. We urge you to take all possible precautions to protect your health, even if this means you cannot attend in-person events. The health of our community is of the utmost importance, and the Temple will continue to provide online events to serve those who cannot attend in-person events.
In addition to being fully vaccinated, all attendees will be required to wear a facemask that covers both nose and mouth at all times.
- Acceptable facemasks are those that secure with ear loops or ties, have a snug fit to the face, covering over the nose and under the chin, and are multilayered.
- Disposable face masks, and cloth masks, that meet these specifications are acceptable.
- Unacceptable face coverings are plastic shields (used alone), bandanas, scarves, or gaiters. Face coverings with valves are also unacceptable.
Tips for Proper Mask Use
- Wash or sanitize your hands before putting on a mask and after taking one off.
- Avoid touching the exterior of your mask. Wash or sanitize your hands if you do so.
- Change or wash masks when they become soiled, wet, or show signs of damage. Disposable masks should not be worn for more than one day, and cloth masks should be washed after each day of use.
- Wear your mask so that it covers from over your nose to under your chin the entire time you are in public. Your mask should fit snugly in order to provide you and the community with proper protection.
