COVID-19 OPERATING POLICY

This policy is subject to change as regulations around COVID-19 are updated

To meet our previous commitments to individuals enrolled in activities or using our facility, the following protocols are in place for all individuals entering our building until further notice. Our policy is guided by information from the Public Health Agency of Canada, Middlesex London Health Unit, and to comply with the government requirements for organizations in our sector. TAP’s COVID-19 operating policy and protocols are in place to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. However, attending in-person events could increase your risk of contraction, as such visitors voluntarily assume all risks and agree that they will not hold TAP liable for any illness that may result.

HEALTH & SAFETY PROTOCOLS WHILE AT TAP

All individuals regardless of their vaccine status -fully vaccinated, partially vaccinated or unvaccinated- will be required to follow the mandatory Health & Safety Protocols while at TAP:

 

Check in – All visitors and event attendees will be required to check in on arrival at the front desk. Some programs in our facility continue to require proof of vaccination along with photo identification at the time of arrival. This requirement will be identified during registration or ticket purchase.

 

Self-screening – All individuals are asked to review the self-screening signage located at the entrance upon arrival or complete the Government of Ontario’s self-assessment screening for COVID-19  before arriving at TAP. If you feel unwell or have any Covid-19 symptoms, please stay at home. If you are awaiting Covid-19 test results, please do not visit TAP until you have received a negative test result. 

 

Masks – All visitors must wear a mask while in the space. Visitors will not be permitted to enter the building without a well-fitted and well-constructed face mask that covers their mouth, nose and chin. Properly wearing a mask is required at all times during your visit with exceptions noted below:

  • In a private office or private studio space when you are alone;

  • While eating or drinking, maintaining physical distancing during this activity to meet the comfort levels of other attendees.

 

Hand hygiene – Hand sanitizing stations will continue to be provided at the main entrance and on each studio floor. Washing with soap and water regularly is recommended if you are staying for a length of time or engaging in hands-on activities.

 

Physical distancing – Where appropriate for some activities individuals will be asked to maintain a physical distance of 2 meters (6 feet) during activities at TAP and seating and activity stations will be pre-determined to help meet this requirement.

Please note that these policies and protocols may change at any time to meet changes of government mandates and public health guidelines. In addition attendance numbers for activities will be limited to meet restriction guidelines. We thank you for helping us provide a safe space for creativity.
