Danaca Design COVID-19 Studio Safety Protocol and Waiver

Please read the following carefully and fill out the form at the end of the page before attending an in-studio class.


COVID-19 Studio Safety Protocol updated 8/26/21


All students are now required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before attending an in-studio class. Individuals are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after the second dose of a two-dose vaccine such as the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines, or two weeks after a single dose vaccine such as the Johnson&Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. 

Due to the changing guidelines around mask wearing and the spread of the Delta variant, students are required to be masked unless seated at their workbench. 

PRE-CLASS PREP 

Student responsibilities: 

    • Get vaccinated! 
    • Doors and windows will be open during class to provide the best air circulation possible. Please dress accordingly.    

Studio responsibilities: 

    • Class size is limited to eight students, plus the instructor, with ample social distancing between benches.  
    • The studio will not be open to the public during class hours.
    • All instructors and staff will be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
