Wyoming Catholic Retreat is hard at work finishing preparations for your arrival. We are excited to welcome you. 

 

This year has been a whirlwind for us all, and we know there have been many questions about how the COVID-19 pandemic will impact your experience. We are pleased to be able to share with you the following information about what you can expect during the retreat. 


 

How We Will Keep You Safe

 

  • Volunteer, and attendee pre-screening, health assessments, and safety precautions:

    • Volunteers are continuing daily assessments of their health designed to identify symptoms of COVID-19. 

 

  • Volunteer, and attendee social distancing support:

    • Following Wyoming Health guidelines, volunteers have been practicing social distancing and doing their best to stay well.

    • Before your arrival, our staff will finish the setup of areas you will encounter during your visit. In high traffic areas, or where waiting may occur, there will be markings to assist you in following social distancing guidelines. Occupancy of indoor spaces will be limited and controlled. Signs will be posted in these areas instructing you how to stay safe, and protocols will be communicated to you during your check-in process.

 

  • Enhanced cleaning and hygiene practices for volunteers, and attendees:

    • Staff and volunteers have been instructed and coached on how to minimize the risk of infecting themselves or others with COVID-19 or any communicable disease through increased hygiene standards.

    • Extra cleaning staff has been hired, and this team will be on a continuous mission to clean commonly touched surfaces and areas where disease can spread.

    • Extra cleaning of the restroom and dining areas will be performed, and properly equipped crew will handle food preparation and serving.

    • Enhanced cleaning protocols for optional communal activities and surfaces are in place, and signage will remind participants about how to assist us and help keep everyone safe after engaging in these activities.
