ISKCON Governing Board Commission statement about Coronavirus, 12.3.2020

 

Dear ISKCON Community Members,
Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.


Yesterday, we received the sad news of a beloved member of the Bhaktivedanta Manor Community in the UK passing from this world as a result of the coronavirus.


In light of the seriousness of the situation, we request all of our ISKCON communities, temples, and centres to adhere to the following recommendations:
Temple events will continue as scheduled.

 

However, we request that you do not visit the temple if:
1. You have any symptoms of COVID-19, the illness caused by the new coronavirus — fever,
cough, or shortness of breath.
2. You have been around anyone else with the above symptoms.
3. You have a compromised immune system and are therefore at a greater risk of contracting COVID-19.
4. You are worried about catching the coronavirus disease.
5. You have travelled to high-risk countries listed at https://www.cdc.gov or been in close
contact with someone who has travelled to one of these countries.
In any of the above cases, please refrain from participating in temple activities for at least 14 days after your return or after you are symptom-free.


We also request the following precautions:
1. Anyone involved in cooking or serving prasadam must wash their hands every 20 minutes with hot water and soap for 20 seconds. Servers must wear disposable gloves.
2. Anyone showing any symptoms of any illness should remain out of the kitchen and also not serve prasadam.
3. Avoid shaking hands.
4. Avoid touching your face.
5. Please do not distribute prasadam flowers, oil, or water at this time.


Thank you very much for your cooperation.
Hare Krsna,
Your servants,
Ramai Swami, Bhakti Caitanya Swami, Bhanu Swami (GBC Executive Committee)
