SUMMER AT THE BARN (Summer 2022)
Plans for safe & healthy Artbarn programs:
Masks are optional for all actors and staff.
All participants aged 5 & up are required to be fully vaccinated – all recommended COVID-19 vaccines, including booster doses.
All participants and staff will be encouraged to wash their hands and use hand sanitizer frequently throughout the day.
Activities will be designed to minimize contact and maximize social distancing to the extent possible.
Any participant or staff member showing symptoms of COVID-19 will be isolated while arrangements are made for them to leave rehearsal.
In accordance with CDC guidelines: any actor, intern, or staff member who tests positive for COVID-19 (regardless of their vaccination status), may only return to Artbarn after a 5-day isolation period and provided that (a) they have not had a fever or used a fever-reducing medication in the last 24 hours, (b) their symptoms are improving, and (c) they have not been instructed to continue isolating by a doctor or school health official.
Note – the Artbarn staff and interns are all fully vaccinated.
In Norfolk County, Massachusetts, the community level is currently Low.
We will continue to monitor the recommendations of the CDC, the Department of Public Health, and the Town of Brookline. We will adjust the structure of our programs as necessary to adhere to current guidelines and regulations.
