COVID-19 SAFETY GUIDELINES

Skagit County Public Health has confirmed that indoor group art classes are permitted under the Phase 3 reopening plan. Within RECREATION rules for the State of Washington, art classes can be offered indoors if the following rules are followed:

 

•Everyone must wear a mask at all times.

•There is at least 6′ of distancing between workspaces.

•Regular sanitizing practices are used for bathrooms and public areas.

•Each student is assigned a set of tools to use without sharing, which are disinfected at the end of each session.

•Use is limited to 50% of Fire Department established capacity.

•Windows and doors will remain open when possible.

•Those who are not feeling well are prohibited from attending.

 

*GICCA strongly supports the plans developed by Washington State, as they indicate their intent to start a clear pathway forward to slow the spread of COVID-19. Only classes that can demonstrate they meet these requirements are added to the Guemes Island Art “CLASSES” listing, but each potential student should evaluate the choices and make a personal decision.*
