Has been cancelled!
Unfortunately, after much deliberation and discussion, New Govardhana Management have decided to cancel the 2020 Sacred Sound Kirtan Retreat due to the risk of possible contamination and spread of the Coronavirus in such a large group gathering. The information available and expert advice strongly recommends taking these precautions to avoid a potential epidemic and escalation of this highly contagious condition.
Should the community be affected by the virus it would most likely be quarantined which would lead to all sorts of issues.
We are also very concerned for the safety of our residents, guests and close community members and want to take all steps to ensure their health is protected.
We are very sorry to be the bearers of bad news as we were enthusiastically planning for a wonderful festival. But your health and wellbeing is our most important consideration during these high risk situations.
There have been no reported cases yet in the New Govardhana community but these measures are to ensure we minimise the risk of any cases occurring in the future.
