Guidelines for COVID-19

At Aphrodite Temple, we are intelligent about risks for disease transmission and adopt a harm reduction approach. We practice explicit verbal consent at Aphrodite Temple and you always have a choice to limit your participation and activities to what feels safe for you.

We invite you to use the COVID CARE framework developed by Evelin Dacker, for navigating your choices.
