And next to that, we know your emotional and mental health are very important, and that is why we are so excited to be able to offer The Desert – 2022 to our Vivi Magoo family next month.

YOUR SAFETY AND HEALTH ARE OUR TOP PRIORITY

To set your mind at ease, we want you to know we have been constantly monitoring events associated with Covid and its variants.  We are planning to follow the CDC guidelines, and knowing the situation is constantly fluid, we will incorporate any new and updated measures as we approach February. We’re continuously monitoring the CDC for updates, consulting with medical professionals with expertise in the field, and noting recommendations on ways to remain healthy, all of this with the express purpose of making a wise decision about what we can do specifically to reach the goal of providing a safe environment for our Vivi Magoo family.

NEVER BE SO BUSY AS NOT TO THINK OF OTHERS.  MOTHER THERESA

Masks – social distancing – hand sanitizer – equipment disinfectant – temperature checks – rapid tests as needed – are all on the table as possibilities, and as we progress over the next several weeks, we should have a clearer picture of where we stand.

WHEN PEOPLE CARE ABOUT EACH OTHER, THEY ALWAYS FIND A WAY TO MAKE IT WORK. Nicholas Sparks

As we get closer to our event, we will have a more definite policy – again, based on the CDC guidelines. We don’t want to put the cart before the horse at this time, not knowing if guidelines will be more-or-less stringent in the coming weeks. Rest assured, we are planning to do everything in our power to keep everyone safe and healthy during our workshop. We can’t guarantee anything, but we will do our utmost best to provide classroom environments that focus on health and well-being.
