Spring 2022: In-Person Programming & Health/Safety Updates

Happy & Healthy Spring Everyone!

We at Building Roots would like to wish you a prosperous transition into summer and a safe experience as we enter a new phase of health & safety guidelines.

We are excited to get back to implementing some in-person programming in 2022.

To Support the comfort and confidence of participants, our in-person programming will use the following guidelines for the near-term future:
  1. We will prioritize venues that have good ventilation and/or the adequate space & facilities for increased distancing.
  2. Staff, Volunteers & Participants will continue to wear masks indoors.
  3. We will ask for proof of vaccination for indoor facilities and request that people who are currently infected, experiencing symptoms, or have recently been exposed – to please join us at a later date.
  4. We will maintain some physical distancing during workshops.
  5. We will limit group size to 12 participants.
  6. Communication & outreach materials for in-person gatherings will name accessibility & accommodations in them.

We continue to be diligent and believe these are the best guidelines for our organization at this time. We work with community members who may face heightened vulnerability, risk, and complications due to exposure, and recognize the importance of remaining diligent in our safety efforts.

At this time, we would also like to commit to evaluating what our health & safety policies will be on a monthly basis. Our organization will be releasing updates as this process continues.

Building Roots is also involved in support UHN (University Health Network) as well as other vaccine-distribution organizations.
