COVID-19 Protocols

Sheep Creek Arts Council has the following Protocols in place to help reduce the possibility of spread of COVID-19.  We expect all members and instructors to abide by these protocols when using the SCAC space.

  • Anyone exhibiting symptoms of cough, fever, shortness of breath, runny nose or sore throat (even if they appear mild or resemble a cold), are not to enter the building.

  • Masks are to be worn at all times when in the building. Exceptions will be to consume food at your physically distanced space, or when the instructor needs to demonstrate a technique. Instructors must wear a mask when helping students individually.

  • There is a 10 student limit plus the instructor. Students are to sit at a space that has been set up to accommodate physical distancing.

  • Everyone is to sanitize their hands upon entry to the building and before using commonly touched surfaces (example: irons when quilting). Several hand sanitizers are available for member use. Equipment surfaces are to be sanitized (with cleaner provided) after each use.

  • There is no sharing of food or beverages.

  • Members and instructors are responsible for cleaning their personal space after use with cleaners that are supplied.

These protocols are subject to change based on changes in guidelines from Provincial or Municipal authorities.

With everyone’s cooperation, we can continue to pursue our artistic endeavours in a safe manner.

Mandatory Use of Masks Indoors

 

Masks are mandatory:

  • in all indoor public spaces, workplaces and places of worship, including eligible businesses that implement the Restriction Exemption Program

  • for employees in all indoor work settings, except while alone in work station

 

Mask Exceptions

In the specific settings where a mask is required, anyone unable to wear a mask due to an approved medical condition will require a medical exception letter from an authorized health professional.

Restriction Exemption Program

The Sheep Creek Arts Council has agreed to go forward with classes in the Autumn of 2021 by accessing the Restriction Exemption Program.

 

Operators must follow or exceed the program requirements at all times, including requiring all patrons aged 12 and over to provide valid:
