COVID POLICY UPDATE – May 2022 (subject to change)

As of now, there are no mask mandates at any of our venues. However, please note that if the case counts rise, state of the pandemic changes, or any local health departments, governments or venues require it, we will need to follow the guidelines and requirements.

The Guest Artists, Faculty, and Guitar Workshop Plus respectfully ask all participants to be fully vaccinated or tested for COVID before attending.

 

 

 

COVID POLICY Effective November 2021 (Subject to change)

Dear GWP Attendees,

Various regions, venues, and events have come out with their own COVID-19 policies. Until further notice, and in light of the fact that our program takes place in an intimate setting, all upcoming GWP sessions will need to follow our COVID-19 policy. Details of this policy are explained below.

Guitar Workshop Plus will be following all safety measures and protocols set by health and government officials, venues, and additional regulations set by GWP. All safety protocols will be strictly enforced. This may include social distancing in group settings, masks, as well as regular use of hand sanitizer and handwashing and/or other measures. GWP will be updating our protocols to keep everyone safe on every level. Some locations and venues may have a proof of vaccination and/or negative test result policy to be allowed entry. Guitar Workshop Plus respectfully asks all participants to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 before attending the session(s).

 

COVID-19 Policy – November 2021 (subject to change)

Due to the rising number of cases and hospitalizations primarily among the unvaccinated population, and the situation with the Covid-19 pandemic, we have decided to implement the following COVID-19 policy at all upcoming sessions until further notice:

  • As a condition to participating in the session, subject to any otherwise applicable law or legal mandate, all participants, including faculty, staff, and attendees, will be required to show proof (your COVID-19 vaccination card/receipt, QR code, etc) of full vaccination against COVID-19 (from a WHO/FDA/HC approved vaccine) prior to the start of the session.
  • Those persons seeking exemption from the mandatory vaccination policy due to religious or medical reasons will be required to submit an exemption request form with supporting documents, and take a COVID-19 test at the start of each day of the session (at their own expense) showing proof of a negative result.
  • All participants, including faculty, staff, and attendees, who agree to comply with the foregoing guidelines may be excused from wearing masks on GWP premises (subject to any otherwise applicable law or legal mandate). However, if it is recommended to wear a mask at the time of the session, we respectfully ask all participants to do so.
  • Any participant, including faculty, staff, and attendees, who does not agree to comply with the foregoing guidelines will not be permitted to attend the session or any GWP activities, (subject to any otherwise applicable law or legal mandate).
  • If you are exposed to COVID-19 or experience COVID-19 related symptoms during the session, you will be requested to quarantine and will not be permitted on GWP premises until you receive a negative test result. We are looking into finding nearby medical facilities to ensure testing/care for participants (at their expense) in the event of any COVID-19 symptoms and/or exposures.
  • We will comply with all applicable laws and legal mandates in those locales where proof of full vaccination is not required. In those cases, we respectfully request that all participants voluntarily provide proof of full vaccination. Those participants who choose not to do so will be required to wear masks at all times during all GWP activities both indoors and outdoors.

Our concern is out of respect and safety for you and all participants.

 

Best Regards, 
Guitar Workshop Plus
