Grand re-opening September 15
Wed, Sep 15, 2021

Beginning September 15, if all goes well, we plan to open our doors to in-person Sangha Nights. 

Wednesday evenings beginning September 15.

For the safety and welfare of all beings we are requiring that all in-person attendees register and confirm that they are fully vaccinated and free of Covid related symptoms. Unfortunately we do not have the capacity to ensure everyone's safety otherwise. (We will continue to have a zoom option for those unable to attend, for as long as there's an interest in this.  Register for the online zoom link here.)  

Before registering for in-person attendance please read this list of statements carefully and confirm that they are true for you, and that you are willing to review and confirm again in person each time you arrive at the SFBC:

Yes, I am fully vaccinated with an FDA-approved vaccine for COVID-19

In the last 2 days I have not had any of the following symptoms: fever (100.4°F/38°C or greater); chills or shivering: cough or sore throat;
shortness of breath or difficulty breathing; feeling unusually weak or fatigued; loss of taste or smell: muscle or body aches; headache; vomiting or diarrhea, nausea; runny or congested nose

In the past 10 days I have not been diagnosed with COVID-19 or had a test confirming you have the virus

In the past 10 days I have not had close contact with anyone who has COVID-19, during their contagious period. 

I have read and to the best of my ability I agree to practice the 5 Buddhist precepts as described here.

Supporting Commitment to change
