COVID-19 information

Below you will find information on ACT-1's protocols as of July 15, 2022.

Please note that this is an ever changing environment and we will continue to update and change our policies as we get updates from the CDC and local government. 

In-person group sizes are being limited.

Everyone on our staff is fully vaccinated and boosted, and tests weekly. 

COVID-19 REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDENTS IN CLASSES/REHEARSALS:

 

1) Testing: 

Regardless of vaccination status, all students will be required to show proof of a negative Covid-19 test each week for class.​

ACT-1 can provide all students and staff with an OTC covid test once a week! All you need to do is ask :) 

Accepted Types: 

  1. Doctor's office test. Please send (via email) your negative COVID-19 test. Student's full name must appear clearly.

  2. PCR test site (can be Rapid). Please send (via email) your negative COVID-19 test. Student's full name must appear clearly.

  3. OTC rapid test (Please arrive 15 minutes early to administer your test on-site. No photos of tests will be accepted, or tests taken off-site).

 

​Exceptions for Testing: We understand that having had a Covid-19 positive result means that you may continue to test positive for up to 90 days. In that case, if you are past your isolation period (with no symptoms), you may attend with a signed doctor’s note explaining the date of your Covid diagnosis and the reason for a continued positive test result.

2) Masks:

* Our studio is well-ventilated with A/C circulating. In compliance with the current Los Angeles County Department of Public Health Order of the Health Officer (effective 4/14/22), masks will be optional indoors and outdoors for all individuals. 

3) Travel Advisory:

* Please get tested 3-5 days after returning from any travels, and before your return to ACT-1.
