COVID-19 Workshop Protocols

  • As the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic continues to affect us all, we understand you have concerns about your upcoming workshops.
  • The health and safety of our workshop participants and instructors is our first priority, and all decisions, logistics, and protocols are based on these considerations. We want you to know that we continually monitor the situation and make adjustments to our workshops and schedule as necessary

COVID-19 Vaccine

  • Unless you have a medical reason, proof of COVID-19 vaccination is required to attend one of our workshops. Our pros, guides, and staff are fully vaccinated. If you are medically unable to be vaccinated, you must bring a negative COVID test with you that is done not more than 72 hours from the start of the workshop.

Traveling to the Workshop

  • Please be extra vigilant while traveling. Remember that traveling is much different now, so allow more time and be ready for longer queues and differences with check-in and seating. Check for special policies and procedures in advance with your carriers, airports, and hotels.
