COVID PROCEDURES FOR IN-PERSON CLASS PARTICIPANTS
Due to the recent surge in COVID cases due to the newest variant of Omicron, we have updated our COVID-19 studio policy.
Student safety is our priority, and we want to ensure a safe place for students to come and learn. As of December 28th, 2021, we will be enforcing a vaccination requirement for all students. Due to the recent surge in cases due to the new Omicron variant, we will be requiring proof of vaccination to be shown on the first day of class. Please note that medical and religious exemptions will be considered with a written note. See below for details on the vaccination protocol. Our required mask mandate will continue to be implemented for all classes. These policies will apply until further notice. We will keep you updated on any future policy changes.
How it will work:
On the first day of class, students will be asked to show their vaccination card to the instructor, along with a proof of identification matching the name on the vaccination card. Completion of the vaccination series (1 dose for Johnson & Johnson, or 2 doses for Moderna/Pfizer) is highly encouraged before beginning any of our classes. To encourage vaccination, we will accept just the first dose, as long as the student plans to complete the remaining vaccination dose(s). A booster dose is not required, but also encouraged.
For those with medical and religious exemptions to the vaccination, you will need to provide a weekly negative Covid PCR test taken 1-2 days before your class. Please bring your negative Covid results with you to class each week to show the instructor as you arrive.
PLEASE NOTE: This updated vaccination requirement is only applicable to our ADULT classes. For our students in our Teen or Kids Acting classes, we will not require proof of vaccination, but do still encourage vaccination when applicable. Teen and Kids classes will continue to require mask wearing.
For any film shoots at the studio, all students will be required to additionally submit a negative Covid PCR test 1-2 days before filming unmasked (no over the counter tests will be accepted). We will still be enforcing social distancing during these shoots. Film shoots will be closed, which means only actors performing and the teacher and filming assistant will be in the studio at a time, so that those acting can be unmasked. Students unable to adhere to these requirements will have to film their scenes masked.
In the case that you become ill or are tested positive for COVID, we would also like to remind you that every class has a coordinating Zoom option where you can attend virtually for the day. Please do not hesitate to use that option if you feel that you are sick, if you believe you have been exposed to COVID, or are currently in isolation.
Thank you very much for your patience and understanding.
