The Executive Director on the Omicron variant… and Pendle Hill’s ongoing COVID-19 Protocols


Dear Pendle Hill Friends,

Francisco Burgos, Executive Director

Francisco Burgos

As this winter holiday season unfolds, we at Pendle Hill greet the season with anticipation, both joyful – as we look forward to celebrations and our first in-person education programs since the pandemic – and worrisome, as we begin to learn more about the most recent Omicron variant of the COVID-19 virus.

As many of you know, Pendle Hill was able to welcome sojourners and group rentals back to our serene campus in June of 2021 thanks to the hard work of staff developing many new protocols and practices to safely serve guests. We also took this step amidst increasing vaccination rates and a decrease in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations. In September we implemented the requirement that every guest at Pendle Hill provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 or proof of negative results from a PCR test taken within 72 hours of arrival on campus. (Please see our announcement of this policy, as well as the FAQ for details on how we ask visitors to abide by it.)
