For everyone’s safety, COVID-19 vaccination prior to the workshop is required, to be eligible to attend.
Masks: For everyone’s safety, mask-wearing is required during the workshop, except when outside, eating or speaking. Trainers will wear masks when not actively facilitating, and will unmask when speaking to the full group. We ask that participants travel to the workshop masked to limit exposure. Microphones for amplification may be offered, based on availability at the venue.
Testing: All participants will need to take a PCR test within 3 days of this workshop, and share negative results with the trainers before joining the group. Everyone will take a rapid-COVID test upon arriving at the workshop venue each day. We will provide the 3 daily rapid tests for each participant.
Meals: We will plan to eat meals outside. If we are unable to eat outside due to the weather, participants will have the option to eat socially distanced in our meeting room space. We will do our best to open doors and use fans to create more air circulation when possible.
Positive & Exposure Protocol: If during the workshop a participant tests positive, experiences symptoms, and/or learns they’ve had exposure (i.e. family member or housemate back home tests positive), they will not be permitted back into the workshop. We will disclose to the group, give them a credit to transfer their registration to a future WPCR workshop (online or in-person), and offer reasonable support around travel back home or quarantine.
If someone has a known Covid exposure in the week leading up to the workshop, they will only be permitted to attend the workshop if they have completed the CDC’s recommended quarantine period (isolated for 5 days after exposure) and continued to test negative.
If someone tests positive for Covid or experiences symptoms within 14 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.
Moving the workshop online: If the COVID-19 exposure or risk becomes too high to hold this workshop in-person, we will switch the workshop to be held online. The hours will remain the same, except that the first day will run from 5:30 - 9pm if held online (instead of 5pm-9:30pm). Trainers will aim to make the final decision about whether it is necessary to switch the workshop online 30 days in advance, and will notify all participants. Our intention is to go ahead with holding the workshop in-person if the level of Covid risk in Philadelphia remains similar to or lower than current levels.
If any of this protocol changes, we will let you know as soon as possible.
