    • I will practice social distancing from anyone not in my household.

    • I will wash my hands often.

    • I will cover my face in public.

    • I will self-screen for symptoms each day and stay/go home if I am sick.

    • I will self-report if I experience symptoms and seek testing immediately.


During Your Class/Workshop:

  • In the Studio:
