COVID PROTOCOL

 

 

PVTC continues to follow CDC, State, and County guidelines to keep our community safe. We thank everyone for your cooperation and commitment to the health of students, parents, teachers, interns, and patrons. We have missed seeing everyone's beautiful faces, but we're grateful we've been able to continue our programming through the pandemic.

Starting on April 4th, masking is optional for vaccinated individuals participating in PVTC programming. PVTC still highly recommends masking, but we trust our families to decide what is best for them and will respect their masking decisions.

 

Details about our updated COVID policies are as follows:

 

  • Vaccinated individuals may choose to wear a mask or not while participating in PVTC programming. PVTC will respect the decision to mask or to unmask.

  • Participants wishing to unmask indoors must show proof of vaccination prior to entering the space. We will keep a record of vaccination status onsite.

  • Unvaccinated individuals must continue to wear masks indoors at PVTC.

  • If any student has potentially been exposed to COVID-19, please wear a mask both indoors and outdoors until testing negative 5 days after exposure.

  • If you are feeling any mild symptoms of a cold, illness, please continue to stay home.

  • If you want your child to continue to wear a mask in class while indoors, please speak to your child about keeping their mask on despite having other students in class possibly not wearing one. If you want the teaching artist to enforce masking with your child, please alert a PVTC staff member at drop-off.

  • Individuals who test positive for COVID-19 must quarantine for a minimum of five days. They can only return to PVTC programming when symptoms subside AND they have a negative antigen test.

  • PVTC will continue to monitor state and county guidelines to align our policies with their recommendations.

 

Our priority continues to be the safety of our teachers, students, parents, and community-at-large. The journey back from COVID is ongoing and we will continue to post updates as our policies change and evolve.
