COVID-19 Board Policies
NEW Vaccination Policy
PILLAR believes in the effectiveness and safety of vaccines to prevent serious illness and to save lives. PILLAR believes adults should receive all vaccines according to what is recommended by the Centers for Disease Control. PILLAR is committed to supporting the CDC and the State of Colorado’s efforts to encourage vaccination.
Our primary concern is the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, instructors, and participants who are of a mature age. Therefore, as of July 15, 2021, PILLAR is requiring proof of COVID vaccination and a COVID liability waiver of all staff, volunteers, instructors, and participants who work in the office or who intend to participate in in-person classes. For those who are unvaccinated, classes will be available through Zoom.
