COVID-19 Policy

1)      Vaccination

●       All volunteers are not required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 per CDC guidelines. However, we highly recommended vaccines for volunteers. 

2)      Testing

●       Volunteers are required to take an at-home COVID-19 test the day of their departure from home before coming to Nazareth Farm and show a negative test result. You should have the results of this test before you meet with your group to leave.

                                                               i.      If you meet as a group to take your test, one positive person would mean the entire group would not be able to attend Nazareth Farm. If each individual tests at home, you have then protected the rest of your group from exposure.

                                                             ii.      If you are leaving your home on Saturday, please take the test before you start your journey.

●      The only exception to this policy is volunteers who have tested positive for Covid-19 in the past 3 months, recovered, and show no new symptoms of Covid-19. More information about accessing testing can be found on the CDC website.

●      While not a requirement, it is recommended that groups bring rapid at-home tests in case they are needed during the week or during travel. It is requested that each person brings a KN 95 or N 95 mask during their service week

3)      Symptomatic Individuals or Exposure

●      People with a new cough, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, or fever during the week prior to their planned Nazareth Farm trip must not participate unless they have a physician’s note with an alternate diagnosis and a negative PCR test for Covid-19.

●      If you have been exposed to someone with Covid-19, you are expected to follow the current CDC Quarantine Guidelines. Depending on the date of exposure, you may need to stay home from your trip to Nazareth Farm, even if you test negative the day of arrival.

●      If a volunteer, sojourner, or staff member becomes symptomatic during their time at the Farm, they will be given a test at Nazareth Farm or taken for testing at a local urgent care. They can be isolated from the rest of the group in our staff house while we await results. Depending on the situation, a volunteer and their group may be sent home. This decision will be at the discretion of the Nazareth Farm staff, and volunteers are expected to respect the decision we make.

Thank you for your commitment to protect others, especially our vulnerable community members and other volunteers. For further clarification or concerns, please contact nazarethfarm@gmail.com or 304-782-2742. 


Nazareth Farm is not a peanut-free environment. However, we will do our best to create a safe environment for participants with allergies. If you do have allergies, please contact us at vcoordinator@nazarethfarm.org well before your trip so we can best prepare our facilities.


Cell phones do not receive service in the valley where Nazareth Farm is located. Volunteers and chaperones should not expect that they will be able to use cell phones while they are here. Nazareth Farm’s office phone number (304-782-2742) will be available in case of emergencies. Otherwise, please do not plan to contact participants during the retreat week to help create an immersive experience for all.
