SGI-USA lifts COVID-19 vaccination and mask requirements at all Buddhist centers and rental facilities.

The CEC established four key guidelines as the SGI-USA advances toward fully reopening activities. They are:

• Youth support: Our focus will continue to be on finding and raising capable youth to support SGI-USA centers behind the scenes and ensure their development.

• In-person meetings: The CEC members agreed to hold a majority of our activities in person and asked that all leaders consider this to be a priority in making decisions.

• Vaccinations: All vaccination requirements are now removed, aside from at the FNCC, which will follow suit on July 1. These new guidelines apply to behind-thescenes youth support groups and leaders.

• Masks: Masks are now optional for all activities, including FNCC conferences. Members are encouraged to stay home if they are feeling ill; or, if they feel under the weather but well enough to attend an in-person meeting, they are asked to wear a mask as a courtesy to other members.
