Protecting our Community – 2023 Update

Standard Safety Measures

  • If you or any members of your household have any symptoms of Covid 19, common colds or flu we ask that you stay home. 
  • We engage in an adapted cleaning schedule, using hospital-grade anti-viral materials 
  • All of our team members and volunteers are fully vaccinated 
  • Sanitiser stations are made available throughout the building 

Preparing for your visit 

  • Please arrive at least 15mins before the class begins for safe arrival. 
  • Please wash or sanitise hands upon arrival 
  • Please ensure you have a face covering ready for your visit. 
  • If you require a chair rather than a mat and cushion for your place in the ceremony, please let the team member on hand know when you arrive. 
  • Please consider wearing a face-mask on your journey to Jamyang, both as a precaution for our vulnerable community members and as a means to reduce exposure to the covid co-risk of air pollution. 

Advice for guests considered more at risk 

Check here if you are not sure whether you are considered particularly at-risk from Covid-19. 

Please note:  

  • After 30 June 2023, COVID-19 vaccinations will only be available for people who are at higher risk from severe COVID-19, including those with a weakened immune system  and a wider group of people such as those with an underlying health condition. The vaccine will then usually only be offered seasonally (for example, during the autumn-winter period), except for people who have a severely weakened immune system, who may be specifically advised to get the vaccine sooner. –  NHS 

Ethics, compassion and Interconnectedness 

With the realistic likelihood of seasonal reinfections and the unpredictable nature of new variants, It is important to recognize the interconnected nature of small individual actions and the long term health conditions of other individual beings and communities. By prioritizing the well-being of both individuals and the community, we can collectively work towards reducing the negative consequences of accidental harm, including temporary illness, exacerbation of long term health conditions , long covid, and in some cases untimely death.
