The Center’s COVID Task Force recently met and made a change in mask-wearing policy at Arnold Park and Chapin Mill: masks are no longer required when in motion throughout the buildings (kinhin, dokusan waiting line, changing room, etc.). The only time we now require masks is during chanting and recitations in the zendo (e.g., The Three Refuges, The Four Vows, the Verse of the Rakusu).

We still require full vaccination, and will continue to use air purification systems in the zendo, the dokusan room, and the dining room.
