Weekly Registration Aug 2 - 8

Gaea Retreat Center will now be opening to recreational activities throughout the week. This is very dependent upon the community being responsible to and for each other, and relying on each other to respect the guidelines below. The board of directors wants to ensure to the greatest extent possible the safety of the community. The following guidelines will be in place until further notice. 

CABINSPACE: IF you are wanting to reserve space in a cabin please email caretaker@gaearetreat.org to complete the reservation process.

Preregistration is required!

In order to facilitate this, each week we will have a pre-registration space on the website that is available to book your stay.  

To be allowed on property, you (and everyone with you, including children) must pre-register. 

Everyone must also pre-pay, to remove cash-handling. 

Pre-registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis.  

To do work projects, you must contact the caretaker ahead of time to arrange when you will be on property, and what project you want to do. 

 

Entrance and Exit

To make sure that we can keep these safety guidelines, we’ll be keeping the gate closed and locked. From 10 pm to 6 am, people may leave, but re-entrance will not be permitted overnight. We ask that you try to only leave if it is an emergency and you need to go.

A walkie-talkie will be available at gate so that you can request entrance during the days that you have pre-registered. You may use the same walkie to request exit.  

If you need to leave after 10 pm, there will be a walkie talkie at the exit, and someone on duty that will let you out. 

 

 

Safety Guidelines! 

 

We can’t emphasize enough how much we love this community, and want us to be safe - together! We have missed you so very much, and everything below here is not a suggestion - it’s a requirement, to respect each other, and to keep each other safe! We will be providing as much signage as possible to help you remember all of this information, and if you have a question - please ask! Let’s do this! 

 

 Screening

If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19, you must remain off property for 14 days after symptoms have subsided, or after you were diagnosed, whichever comes later.  

If you have been caring for or living with an individual who was diagnosed with Covid-19, you must remain off property for 14 days after the last time you came in contact with that person. 

If you currently have a fever (100.4F or higher), a cough, shortness of breath, a sore throat, muscle aches (not related to injury or exercise), loss of taste or smell, or gastro-intestinal issues that are not related to another condition, you must remain off property for at least 14 days after the end of the symptoms. 

People attending in violation of the above guidelines will be subject to disciplinary action. 

If you become sick, or someone you care for becomes sick after leaving land, please notify the BOD as quickly as possible. We will be notifying anyone on land during your times that they could have been exposed. 

  

Sanitizing Efforts

 

If volunteering, when using tools, you are to sanitize every tool you used when you are done.

After using a weedeater, swap the strap for a spare, hang the used strap in the sunlight and spray the used strap with the tool-sanitizer outside of the Main Hall. (Steramine)

All tools should be sprayed down with steramine after use.  

Everything is now Pack In - Pack Out. It is far too dangerous at this time for anyone to sort through trash, so do not discard anything - TRASH OR RECYCLING - at camp. Bring it back out with you. This includes your regular trash, and also cigarettes and pet waste. 

If anyone is found to be violating these rules, they will be given a warning, and then asked to leave property.

We will be reviewing this at the next board meeting, to make sure that things are going well, and the safety guidelines are working.We cannot express at this time, how grateful we are to each and every one of you for your support, your hard work, and your dedication to the Mission of Earth Rising. Please let us know if you have any questions.
