Eldorado COVID – 19 Vaccine Policy
After a year of being closed to public visits, Eldorado Mountain Yoga Ashram is opening again by SGRY with the principal restriction of guests being required to be fully vaccinated prior to visitation and participation in Eldorado programs.
The national/global COVID – 19 Corona Virus and vaccines to defend against it and end the pandemic are the domain of national, state and local health administrations which are leading the United States population out of the pandemic and the loss and destruction it has caused. SGRY’s policy as to vaccines used to fight the pandemic recognizes that obtaining vaccination is an important public health and private health issue in an environment where a national and statewide health crisis exists. Over 500,000 Americans and countless people around the globe have lost their lives and continue to lose their lives to this deadly virus and its emerging variants. SGRY does not view the Corona Virus vaccine and its use as a political issue but rather a safety concern guided by public health administrations that are supported by medical science. Public health administrations and their vaccine development and deployment have created the first line of defense against the pandemic. The administration of the vaccine has not been made mandatory. Strong recommendations for its use have come from the Colorado Governor’s Office and all state health departments which act under the auspices of the Department of Public Health law. In complying with the recommendations of national, state and local health administrations as to vaccine, SGRY’s position is for Eldorado residents and guests to get the vaccine for the greater good and defeat the pandemic. We choose to protect our families with children, our seniors and those with health risks who have compromised immune systems and our valued guests.
We see this as a temporary restriction which will be lifted when herd immunity finally prevails and it is no longer necessary.
We understand that some individuals and families choose not to get the vaccine. That is their right. In establishing this policy at this time, SGRY apologizes for any inconvenience non -vaccinated persons may have in visiting Eldorado. Eldorado is a private church and meditation retreat. State and federal laws allow for the church to choose how to best protect its guests and resident yogis and their families. It has elected to follow the state and local recommendations and guidelines on protecting against the advance of the pandemic all are faced with at this critical time. In gathering indoors together for worship and meditation at Eldorado, the risks of contagion and spread of potent disease must be addressed in a cautious and respectful manner. SGRY believes its Vaccine Policy does so.
***We are asking everyone who’s interested in in-person classes to bring their vaccination card so we can make a note of it on our rosters. Unfortunately we will not allow class and program attendance without proof of vaccination.***
Thank you for your kind understanding and support,
Eldorado Mountain Yoga Ashram.
