Warren Wilson College and The Swannanoa Gathering team are continuing to monitor information from the CDC and state and local health departments to determine the best course of action, in regards to this summer’s Gathering. We currently expect restrictions and concerns regarding COVID-19 to have subsided, with no outstanding risk, by the time of the Gathering this July. We will continue to monitor this situation and will alert all registrants to any change to the workshops.
We recommended all those booking flights to be mindful of airline cancellation policies and consider flight insurance. We advise staying up-to-date with, and following, any CDC and health department guidelines and directives.
