Will I be able to purchase refreshments from the Box Office?
Concessions will not be available and access to the box office will be prohibited. Access to the water fountain will also be unavailable at this time. Students are encouraged to bring their own water bottles and snacks, although they will not be able to store them in our refrigerator or use our microwave.
Will I be required to wear my mask for the duration of the class?
Yes. Students and instructors will be required to wear their masks at all times in the building and during class. Instructors will be advised to schedule breaks to allow students to go outside if they wish to take a break from wearing their masks. Students will be required to put their masks back on prior to reentering.
What will class be like?
Our instructors have been advised to develop curriculum-specific exercises that can be performed while masked, physically distanced, and requiring no physical contact. Class sizes will be limited to allow for proper distancing between individuals. Classes will be scheduled with ample time for cleaning and sanitizing before a new group of students enters the class space.
What should I do if I do not feel well on the day of class?
If you are experiencing COVID-like symptoms, we ask that you contact your instructor as early as possible. You will not be permitted to enter the building while experiencing symptoms. Students who have symptoms, test positive, or have close contact with anyone testing positive for COVID-19 will not be allowed to attend class for either 14 days or until they receive a negative COVID-19 test. Any student who has to miss more than one class will be asked to defer their enrollment to the following term or the next time the class is offered.
What happens if someone in my class tests positive?
Participants will be notified if any other students in the class test positive, respecting the anonymity of the individual. The following class will be postponed and rescheduled to allow for a 14-day quarantine period.
What are you doing to ensure the cleanliness of the building?
We have done our utmost to eliminate as many high contact surfaces as possible. You will see this as fewer chairs and tables available for your use. You will also be unable to access ancillary rooms, such as the Green room, Grey room, Blue room, Box Office and Office. This allows us to concentrate on the remaining contact surfaces, such as the remaining tables and chairs, door knobs/handles, and bathroom surfaces. These areas are being cleaned and disinfected on a closely monitored schedule, before and after each class meeting. Hand sanitizer and disinfectants will be made readily available in the building should the need for additional sanitation arise. Some items you’ve grown accustomed to seeing in our restrooms have been removed, such as feminine care products, room spray, chalk, and additional toilet paper to further reduce contact areas. You will, however, find disinfectant sprays in each bathroom, and instructions on how you can help us ensure a safe and clean bathroom before and after each use.
