Independent Order of Odd Fellows

Health Requirements for Entering Santa Fe Odd Fellows Hall

Every person who enters the hall must be fully vaccinated against covid-19. (This includes children.) Each person must show Id and CDC vaccination card at the door. Fully vaccinated means more than 2 weeks have passed since your 1st (J&J) or 2nd (Moderna or Pfizer) vaccination. (Private businesses are not subject to HIPAA’s rules, so they can legally ask customers about their vaccination status.)

Each person must enter through the front door only. The side door will be blocked to prevent entry but left open to allow air circulation.

Each person’s temperature will be taken.

If your group chooses to do so, it may keep a list of people who have proven that they are vaccinated. This way the group can check them off as they arrive so it won’t need to spend time checking their vaccination card each week.

Masks are not required since the CDC has determined that vaccinated groups doing strenuous activities together are safe without them. (Since masks help prevent colds & flu, you are welcome to continue wearing them.)

Windows will be kept open.

Fans will be on during all sessions.

Hand sanitizer will be available.  (It is generally acknowledged that surface transmission of COVID is virtually nonexistent, but colds and flu can still be easily transmitted via surfaces.)


A sign will be posted on the front door listing the safety requirements.

If you are feeling unwell, please stay home. We will welcome you back when you are feeling better. This is going to be a permanent requirement at the Santa Fe Odd Fellows Hall.

If you are uncomfortable with any of these suggestions, we look forward to seeing you when the requirements are lifted.
