Being Covid Safe At Art XO Studio

Masks - When visiting indoors at the studio, masks are required at all times regardless of vaccination status. Masks must fit properly. Please follow posted signs accordingly.

 

Illness - Do not come to class, a party, open studio or any other program if you feel sick, have experienced sore throat, coughing, fever, runny nose, vomiting...etc or have been exposed to someone who has these symptoms, or has tested positive for a communicable disease including Covid-19. Anyone who presents with symptoms of illness is immediately isolated, and sent home.

Food/Drink - During public programs, such as classes and workshops, we do not allow food or drinks. Students may have a disposable cup of water from the studio. Reusable water bottles can be covered in germs! We thank you for helping keeping the studio sanitized. For parties, we are happy to accommodate your private group with whatever food/drink options suit your comfort level, with airflow. We sanitize high touch surfaces thoroughly before and after any eating or drinking.

 

Vaccination - All staff at Art XO Studio are vaccinated. We reserve the right to request proof of vaccination from studio visitors. Students 12 and over may be asked to provide proof of vaccination. Students 5-12 are not yet required to be vaccinated, but we are following the situation, and strongly encourage everyone to vaccinate. Our families are all vaccinated.

Fresh air - We get excellent air flow straight from the Hudson river! If you see our windows only slightly opened, this is because there are some days that the winds are so strong it knocks the art off of the walls, and blows our art supplies all over. We will make sure to keep ample air flow, without over doing it!
