Because we care about the health of our students and staff, and because we feel an obligation to do everything we can to help stop the proliferation of COVID-19, The Theatre Lab has several safety protocols in place, which we review regularly in response to the evolving situation.
Until further notice, all students and faculty must wear masks whenever they are in the Theatre Lab building and must offer proof that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. We recommend N95 or KN95 masks for the greatest protection, but other masks that cover the nose and mouth are acceptable. We will also continue to ask students to affirm at the beginning of each in-person class meeting that they do not have symptoms similar to those of COVID-19 that cannot be attributed to another cause and have not recently been exposed to anyone with the disease, and require them not to attend class if they can’t affirm that.
Students who test positive for COVID-19 may return to class on the seventh day after receiving their positive test results, but not before. Students who have not tested positive but begin experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 (such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath), should contact their healthcare provider and return to class only after receiving a negative test result.
We have discovered that theatre education in masks works surprisingly well, and it has been a joy to offer opportunities for our students to gather together again. For anyone not ready to return in person, we continue to offer a wide variety of classes online.
“Fully vaccinated” means that either 14 days have passed since receiving the second dose of FDA or WHO authorized double-dose vaccines or that 14 days have passed since receiving the sole dose of FDA or WHO authorized single-dose vaccines.
