As we continue to monitor the changing landscape of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Grünewald Guild is committed to following current federal, state and county guidelines. Honoring the diversity of age and health conditions within our community, we seek to minimize the risk of community based spread of COVID-19 and its variants.

All participants are expected to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Both residential and commuter Guild participants must also receive a negative COVID test within 24 hours of initial arrival on campus.

Either a rapid antigen test or a PCR test are acceptable, and results must be received by each participant before arrival on campus.

This community is one that values mutual care and respect, especially for those community members who are at higher risk. To further protect our community from COVID-19 exposure, we ask all Guild participants to minimize outside social contact in the week leading up to their arrival on campus and to employ appropriate safety precautions (masking, social distancing, etc) when interacting with others. We also ask that all Guild participants employ appropriate safety precautions if they leave campus during their stay.

We are committed to making available test kits for participants who develop symptoms while at the Guild. However, Guild supply is dependent on shifting availability. We ask each participant to bring at least two unused rapid antigen tests with them to supplement the Guild’s supply. If you test positive while at the Guild, we will ask that you isolate and return home as early as possible. The Guild Directors will review the case and take appropriate action to minimize exposure to others.

If you have a confirmed exposure to COVID-19 within 10 days of your arrival at the Guild, we expect participants to follow the CDC’s Quarantine/Isolation Calculator and webpage.  This includes symptom monitoring, additional testing, and masking.  If you have any questions, please contact the Guild.

If you have to cancel due to COVID-19, we offer the following options:
– You can donate part or all to the Guild as a tax-deductible gift;
– You can credit part or all for use at the Guild within one year;
– You can receive a partial or full refund.
