Studio Health and Safety Protocols

General Safer Studio Health & Safety Protocols
Happy Makers Studio requires all staff and students to stay home when they are ill. In order to reduce community spread of Coronavirus, we follow best practices and recommendations from our local health department. Happy Makers Studio understands that unlike older children and adults, young children cannot be expected to maintain social distancing at all times. Therefore Happy Makers Studio focuses on a hierarchy of measures beginning with keeping ill people home, followed by frequent hand cleaning and good hygiene practices, amplified cleaning, and curricular and facility adaptations to minimize contact and mingling where possible.
● The lobby is closed to viewing.
● There is no food allowed in the sewing room. Snacks are permitted during designated
snack times. Sewing students will be asked to wash their hands before snack time. Campers/students
must bring their own snacks and waters in closed containers.
● Desks are set up 6ft apart to maintain social distancing.
● Signage is posted outside and inside to remind campers/students and staff of social distancing
and hand washing.
