GEM Covid-19 Protocol

Next week we will all meet in Hawaii, and we’ll all celebrate our first in-person workshop since 2019 in Santa Fe. However, COVID is still around, and we have to be extremely careful and vigilant.

However, all participants who wish to wear masks are encouraged to do so, and we ask that everyone be respectful of that decision.

We want every single participant of the GEM Summer Workshop and their joining family members to be safe and feel safe. Here are our recommendations:
