Covid-19 Policy For Our In-Person Classes

:: UPDATED AS OF 10/04/2022::

We are thrilled to welcome you back to WorkshopSF for in-person classes, and we are slowly adding additional classes and class capacity as health and safety recommendations allow. All students are required to abide by our safety precautions to ensure a safe environment, as stated below:

  • Per the most recent health order issued by SF Dept. of Public Health and the state of California, vaccinated students are no longer required to wear a mask indoors during class. As of now, wearing a mask in class is optional and at the discretion of the student.
  • All students will need to provide proof of full vaccination prior to entry. We will be contacting each student who buys a class ticket in order to verify their vaccination, and we will update you on the specific verification process prior to class. Failure to provide us with verification will result in non-entry to that class.
  • If you are medically unable to be vaccinated, we require proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken one day (for antigen tests) or two days (for PCR tests) before entry. Please notify us beforehand if you are in this category.
  • Be aware that WorkshopSF instructors are not required to wear masks as they teach. This is to improve their ability to effectively communicate with students during class. All of our instructors have been vaccinated and will address any questions regarding safety precautions from students prior to start. Additionally, each instructor uses disinfectant wipes to wipe down all tools / supplies, as well as common areas such as doorknobs, bathrooms, table surfaces, and trash lids before and after class.
  • If you have been exposed to Covid-19 within 14 days of the workshop and have not been fully vaccinated, or if you believe you are experiencing symptoms of Covid-19 regardless of vaccination status, please contact us via email as soon as possible to cancel your spot. We will offer you class credit at no penalty so you can join us at a later time. PLEASE understand that operating at these smaller class capacities is financially challenging, and every spot counts. So if you need to cancel for this reason, please let us know as soon as possible. All other non-covid related cancellations are subject to our normal 72-hour cancellation policy.
  • Disposable gloves will be provided for classes that share tools upon the request of any student in the case that gloves are not required.
  • Disposable gloves will be required and provided for classes that share tools, and available upon request for any student in the case that gloves are not required. Vaccinated students are not required to wear a mask. If you feel more comfortable wearing a mask, then by all means do so.
  • Our policy is in line with guidelines set forth by SF Department of Public Health, and will be updated as these guidelines change.  We appreciate your cooperation in abiding by these policy rules so we can keep our students and instructors healthy and safe!
