Proof of vaccination required for all guests and staff

We require that our group coordinators verify that all guests, participants, leaders and or facilitators are fully vaccinated and will provide that information to Westerbeke Ranch in the event a COVID related outbreak occurs on property.

Valid proof of vaccination includes: your original vaccine card or a photo of your original vaccine card. California residents may provide proof of vaccination with their original vaccine card or by accessing their Digital COVID Vaccine Record.

Proof of negative COVID test required

If you are unable to receive a vaccination due to health or religious reasons, all guests and staff will provide proof of negative test results to the group coordinator. The test must be taken within 72 hours (if PCR/NAAT) or 24 hours (if antigen). If you are unable to secure a PCR/NAAT or antigen test from a test provider, an at-home rapid test will be accepted.
