Ensuring Responsible Ministry at Loyola on the Potomac

COVID 19 Pandemic Update

July 19, 2021

Effective today, Loyola on the Potomac has lifted all Covid 19/Pandemic protocols that were instituted over the past 16 months.

Your safety remains our priority and therefore we respectfully ask all guests who are not vaccinated to please continue to wear your face mask in all public areas of the Retreat House…and for our guests who are vaccinated, masks remain optional, based on your level of comfort.

We also ask that all guests respect others’ desire for social distancing.  Please do not assume that everyone is comfortable with physical touch, hugs, etc.

We will continue to have hand sanitizing stations throughout the building and encourage all guests to continue and practice the principle of “safety first.”

Our dining staff will continue to utilize face coverings (either mask of shield) and gloves when serving meals.  Out housekeeping staff remains committed to providing a well sanitized and thoroughly cleaned environment.

The Retreat House is now officially reopened to our full capacity of 72 guests.

We are grateful to all who have supported us over these past 16 months and helped us to weather the storm.  Together we remain partners in ministry, beacons of His light, and committed to growing in our relationship with our loving Lord.
