As always, the health, safety, and well-being of our community is our top priority. We are closely monitoring the evolving situation regarding COVID-19, especially as it pertains to our live events. We will continue to follow the recommendations from the CDC, World Health Organization, and local public health and government authorities.

To ensure the safety of all retreat guests, we are requiring documentation of COVID-19 vaccination, or a negative COVID-19 test within 5 days prior to arrival. If you are providing vaccination documentation, please ensure your card shows 3 weeks from full vaccination. If you are providing testing documentation, please plan on having the test done 5 days prior to arrival to ensure results are available.

Upon your arrival we will be implementing the following procedures:

  • Verification of vaccination or negative test results
  • Temperature check
  • COVID-19 questionnaire certifying the absence of any COVID-19 related symptoms or close contact with others exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms

We are following CDC guidelines when it comes to wearing a mask at Chopra retreats. The CDC says that fully vaccinated people do not need to wear a mask or socially distance in most indoor and outdoor settings in the United States — unless required by federal, state, local or tribal laws, or by a business. People are considered fully vaccinated at least two weeks after receiving the single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, or the second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines.

It is highly recommended that those not fully vaccinated, however, should continue to wear face masks indoors and in some outdoor settings. We will provide ample hand sanitizing stations and sanitary wipes upon request.

All staff will be required to provide proof of vaccination or a negative test result, and receive daily temperature checks. In addition, staff will be following the CDC guidelines as well.

COVID-19 policies vary at each of our retreat properties. These policies are available in the links below:

Whole Health Retreat at CIVANA Wellness Resort and Spa

To ensure the safety of all retreat guests, you are required to produce COVID-19 vaccination documentation or a negative COVID-19 PCR test result prior to and within five (5) days of your arrival. If you are providing vaccination documentation, please ensure that your card shows three (3) weeks from full vaccination. If you are providing negative COVID-19 PCR test results, testing must have been conducted within seven (7) days of arrival via an at home testing kit or a testing center. In the event you arrive without the requisite proof of vaccination or negative test results, you will not be allowed to participate in the program and no refund or credit will be provided.

Proof of a vaccination or negative test results should be digitally sent to the medical team via secure upload (instructions will be sent to you via email - if you have not received already).
