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

UPDATE: February 9, 2022

The Sheep Creek Arts Council has decided to cancel their participation in the Restriction Exemption Program in alignment with decisions made by the government of Alberta.  

We will no longer require proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test in order to participate in classes.

However we will continue to require that all participants continue to remain masked at all times while inside the SCAC building, until alternate direction is given by the provincial government.

 

We recognize that many of our members fall into the high-risk category and we are committed to maintaining a safe space for all participants.
