Odd Fellows Health Requirements
Health Requirements for Entering Santa Fe Odd Fellows Hall
Because Covid is no longer seen as a lethal threat, the Health Requirements depend on the group. Most groups meeting at Odd Fellows hall have the following Requirements: Each person who enters the Santa Fe Odd Fellows hall must have at least the original vaccinations against covid-19. (This includes children.) However we would much prefer that everyone is up-to-date with all Covid vaccinations. Each person must show Id and CDC vaccination card(s) at the door. Being up-to-date with vaccinations means more than 2 weeks have passed since your 1st (J&J) or 2nd (Moderna or Pfizer) vaccination PLUS however many Boosters are available.
Private businesses are not subject to HIPAA’s rules, so they can legally ask customers about their vaccination status.
Good quality N95 or Korean made KF94 masks are strongly encouraged although not required.
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. Good ventilation is proven to decrease the risk of Covid.
For good ventilation, windows should be kept open. If fans are on during the session they greatly improve ventilation.
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 they won’t need to spend time checking their vaccination card each week.
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.)
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.
