In response to the pandemic status of the COVID-19 (also known as Coronavirus), the Temple management of ISKCON TORONTO has already put safety measures in place to reduce the risks and impact on our community and our campuses. These measures are in compliance with the recommendations from Health Canada.

The single highest priority of ISKCON TORONTO will always be the health and safety of our community. Updated recommendations by public health officials state that ‘social distancing’ is the most effective means of protecting visitors, residents and community members from infection.

The following measures are in effect at ISKCON TORONTO following this announcement:

THE TEMPLE WILL REMAIN CLOSED TO ALL VISITORS STARTING SATURDAY MARCH 21ST, 2020 UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
There will be no access into the temple; the main doors will remain closed to all guests.
