COVID-19 PROTOCOL. Covid policies vary by workshop; please read the protocol for this specific workshop, below.

Vaccination: Although strongly encouraged, COVID-19 vaccination is not required to attend this workshop. Some participants may not have received vaccination prior to the workshop.

Other Protocol: If someone has known exposure during the workshop (i.e. family member back home tests positive), we will disclose this to the group. The exposed person will be asked to do a rapid test each day before the session begins, results will be shared with the group. That person will be asked to wear a mask, regardless of other mask protocol for the workshop.

We will disclose to the group, offer a fee refund and offer reasonable support around travel back home or quarantine. If someone tests postive for Covid or experiences symptoms within 10 days after the workshop, we will share this information with all participants so they can determine if they need to get tested or take other measures.
