      • COVID-19 is a respiratory illness caused by a novel virus that has been spreading worldwide. Community-acquired cases have now been confirmed in California. We are gaining more understanding of COVID-19’s epidemiology, clinical course, immunogenicity, and other factors as time progresses, and the situation is changing daily. CDPH is in the process of monitoring COVID-19, conducting testing with local and federal partners, and providing guidance and resources to prevent, detect and respond to the occurrence of COVID-19 cases in California. At this time, community transmission of COVID-19 has occurred in California. Educational institutions should prepare for possible impacts of COVID-19 and take precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19, as well as other infectious diseases, including influenza and gastroenteritis.
      • The Ca SIP will not eliminate the disease it will slow the spread so medical teams can prepare and not be overwhelmed by an influx of patients.
    • If the instructor is ill their students will need to zoom classes from home.
    • Staff must wash hands or use hand sanitizer when they enter the building and in between classes
    • Staff must wash their hands or use hand sanitizer after touching their face or using the restroom.
    • All Instructors and staff must wear masks

    What happens if a student who has returned back to class, a staff member, or an immediate family member of that population tests positive for Covid-19?

    The studio will immediately close for in-person classes, for 2 weeks.
