COVID-19 Prevention Protocols

To ensure the health and safety of our guests, we have developed a series of protocols and procedures under the guidance of our Medical Committee that are in alignment with the CDC guidelines and Georgia Department of Public Health.

For the purpose of these Getaways, a family and/or Household is defined as those who live together in the same home outside the Getaway and will be sharing hotel rooms onsite. You are welcome to come to Mishpachah B’Ramah with friends or family members and enjoy the mountains together. However, in order to follow CDC guidelines and ensure a safe environment for everyone in our community, while on campus we will require that you maintain physical distancing with anyone outside your own household.

Please review our COVID-19 Prevention Protocols carefully to learn more about our health and safety policies and protocols for our Family Getaways.
