We will be following Maine CDC guidelines and limit class sizes to 8 students for social distancing purposes. All class participants and instructors must be fully vaccinated and wear KN95 masks which will be provided by RFS at the beginning of the class. The sanctuary also has a new air purifier that filters the air and helps keep us safe.
