COVID Safety at Tara Institute
Now that we are returning to in person teachings, it is important that we all stay mindful in minimising the risks of Covid transmission occurring.
Tara Institute takes the safety and wellbeing of our community very seriously, and all Government restrictions and guidelines will be followed.
It is important to understand the risks and make an informed decision about whether to attend a large gathering, in order to keep yourself and others safe.
There are currently no mandatory vaccination requirements for religious gatherings, and places of worship are open to full capacity - a density quotient does not apply.
If you wish you can access the government regulations here - https://www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/covidsafe-religion-and-ceremonies-guidance
Tara Institute, like all other businesses in Victoria, is required to have an up to date Covid Safe Plan in place. If you would like to see our covid safe plan, it is available here.
