We here at Toronto Sikh Retreat want to ensure a healthy and safe environment for all retreat participants. We strongly recommend that all participants be vaccinated against Covid-19. Participants must take a Covid-19 Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) the morning of Thursday, January 5th. Retreat participants should also complete Ontario’s Covid-19 self-assessment before departing for the retreat ( https://www.ontario.ca/self-assessment/ ). If you test positive for Covid-19 before attending retreat, you must be either symptom free or have lessening symptoms for at least ten days before coming to retreat. If you are unable to attend retreat due to a positive Covid-19 test or due to Covid symptoms, please contact TSR organizers.
If participants contract Covid or begin to have Covid symptoms at retreat, they will be isolated from the rest of the retreat and arrangements will be made for the participants to return home.
Symptoms of Covid-19 include:
- Fever and/or chills
- Cough & sore throat (not related to other known causes or conditions)
- Shortness of breath (not related to other known causes or conditions)
- Decrease or loss of smell or taste
- Gastrointestinal symptoms (i.e. nausea, vomiting, and/or diarrhea)
