Protocols for Operating BK Centers in the USA During COVID19

June 2020



Our objective is to provide guidelines for Brahma Kumaris centers so they can safely reactivate face-to-face activities during the current emergency, as long as local government authorities allow it.

The center’s activities will be mostly offered online. The return to face-to-face activities must guarantee the health of students, teachers and general population.

The following provisions must be complemented to the guidelines given in each country.

General guidelines:

  • All sanitary measures will be followed in order to protect the health of all people, maintaining a welcoming environment with warmth and respect, avoiding any action of discrimination or rejection.
  • If a person does not comply with the measures stated here, they must leave the facilities, because they put themselves and the people with whom they interact, at risk.
  • Access will not be granted to a person with symptoms or signs of cold or flu, or fever.
  • No face-to-face activities will be carried out in case of lack of potable water service in the facilities.
