Vaccine & Mask Recommendations 
  • HFC highly recommends that anyone who can get the COVID-19 vaccine and booster does so before attending our in-person programs, classes, and events. The safety of HFC members is our largest priority, and so if you can get the vaccine please do.  
  • Effective April 2nd, HFC will begin a new mask policy. Masks are welcome, but not required. Masks are welcome, but not required, in most HFC programs, classes, and events. Masking may still be required for some programs, classes, and events based on the mask guidelines of other organizations we work with.
  • HFC will continue to have masks available for anyone who would like to wear a mask. 
  • HFC recognizes that CDC (Centers for Disease Control) and the MN Department of Health Guidelines are updated frequently, and we will do our best to inform you of changes that affect HFC. 
  • If an in-person class needs to be shifted to a virtual class for any reason, we will try to give members as much warning as possible.  
  • If you test positive for COVID-19 and have attended an HFC program, class, or event within 14 days of your positive test result, please contact or call 651-239-8906 immediately to report this. We will keep all information confidential but will have to notify anyone who may have been unknowingly exposed.
