Before You Arrive

COVID-19 Policy*

*Subject to change

Nazareth Farm, Inc. takes Covid-19 very seriously. We feel a responsibility to protect our community and continue with our mission and ministry in a responsible manner. This is especially important as our immediate community includes an infant and an immunocompromised individual, who are all at higher risk of becoming severely ill with Covid-19, as well as many at-risk individuals in our wider community. We understand that volunteers likely will be coming to the Farm with a wide spectrum of thoughts and feelings, personal stories, and personal impacts, as a result of Covid-19 experiences. We firmly believe the Farm has provided a space of safe expression and compassion, of hope, of healing, and growth in faith.

As part of our community, we expect you to be responsible and cautious in the days leading up to your group week, your travel to the Farm, and your time with us. These policies are for all volunteers this summer including chaperones, students, and family week participants. Our staff, sojourners, and other visitors are following the same vaccination and testing guidelines.

  • Vaccination
    • All volunteers are required to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 per CDC guidelines. Booster shots are required if it has been longer than 5 months from your second vaccine.
    • If you or another volunteer has a medical reason to not get vaccinated, please contact Killeen at or 304-782-2742 to discuss further.
  • Testing
    • Volunteers are required to take an at-home Covid-19 test the day of their arrival 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.
      1. 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.
      2. 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.
  • Traveling to Nazareth Farm
    • Your group should make as few stops as possible, for food and bathrooms, and always mask while inside stops. This means you should only eat food outside or in your car. Make sure to have hand sanitizer for your group.
    • You should wear a high-quality mask, ideally a KN95 mask, or a surgical mask and a cloth mask together, to minimize your risk of infection. Read more from the CDC
  • 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 Allyson or Killeen at or 304-782-2742.


Allergy Information

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 the Volunteer Coordinator at well before your trip so we can best prepare our facilities.

Cell Phone Policy

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. We expect chaperones and group leaders to collect cell phones prior to the group’s arrival. We have a lock box available to store cell phones in our office. 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.
