COVID Protocols

All participants, faculty, and staff must meet one of the following conditions to participate in an in-person Body Electric workshop at this time:

  • Be fully vaccinated and show proof of vaccination (boosters remain optional)
  • Have a medical exemption and show proof of medical exemption
  • Have had a prior covid infection (any variant) and show valid current proof (within 6 weeks) of the prior covid infection (e.g., positive PCR test result, signed letter from a physician)
  • In addition to one of these requirements, we will continue to require rapid antigen testing prior to our events.
  • If any retreat facility that we are renting to host an event has more stringent requirements we will be obliged to adhere to those requirements. If a retreat facility does not meet our requirements we will need to reconsider using that facility or negotiate so that we can maintain the integrity of our protocols.

The Body Electric School will require you to show proof of one of the above options upon arrival at the workshop venue. 

To ensure the safety of everyone, we are requiring all participants to take a rapid Covid test upon arrival at the venue.   All participants are asked to either:

  • Purchase a COVID Test Kit prior to arriving at the venue.  You can find them online or at a local CVS or Walmart.  Upon arrival, we will administer your rapid test before entering the workshop space.  (This test kit has two tests and we recommend that you take a rapid test before traveling to the workshop to avoid unnecessary travel if you have contracted Covid).
  • If you cannot find a rapid test in your area, we will have some available for a charge of $15.

Thank you for adhering to these protocols as we strive to make the safest container possible for our work.

    * Cis Men

     * Cis Man: A cis man, shorthand for “cisgender man,” is a non-trans man—a man whose assigned sex at birth is male, and whose gender identity aligns with that typically culturally associated with his sex. This distinguishes him from trans men, shorthand for “transgender men”—men who were initially assigned a female sex at birth, but exist as men. If you identify as a man but are not a transgender man, you’re a cis man.
