COVID-19 HEALTH AND SAFETY GUIDELINES AND PROTOCOLS

 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, will be implementing enhanced health and safety protocols for all in-person projects and activities at BAFT. Please review this document before enrolling in BAFT Studios. 

 

PRE-SCREENING 

 

  • All staff, instructors, actors and filmmakers should monitor their health (including temperature and any signs of illness) for 14 days prior to the start of the first BAFT Studios session. Any person exhibiting any signs of illness during this time period may not participate in BAFT Studios.  

  • Any person who may be high-risk should consult their doctor before enrolling. 


 

CHECK-IN/CHECK-OUT

 

  • All persons MUST wear a face mask during weekly check-in/check out, which will take place outside on the BAFT porch. 

  • Each person will undergo a basic health screening before the start of each BAFT Studios session.  A staff member will do a daily symptom check for all persons (temperature with contactless thermometer, self-evaluation for signs of illness) before entering the building.

  • All persons may only enter the building once the outside check-in is complete . 

  • Any person experiencing symptoms or a fever will be sent home and provided a Zoom link for live streaming class at home. 

 

ENTERING THE BUILDING

 

  • All persons must wash their hands for a full 20 seconds upon entering the building. Sinks for hand-washing are located in the lobby and each of the two restrooms.

  • We are instituting a “no physical contact policy” for all (no hand shaking, fist bumps, hugging, high fives, etc.). This is applicable before, during, and after all BAFT Studios sessions. 

 

INDOOR HEALTH & SAFETY PROTOCOLS: PREVENTING THE SPREAD

​​

  • Unless circumstances permit otherwise, all persons must wear a mask at all times. Masks must cover both the nose and mouth.  

  • Reasonable social distancing will be incorporated.

  • The BAFT lobby, restrooms, and studios will be disinfected before and after each BAFT Studios session in accordance with CDC disinfection guidelines.  

  • Hand sanitizing dispensers will be in high visibility in the lobby and studios.

  • All persons must wash their hands for a full 20 seconds at the beginning and end of any break.

  • No person may share or pass materials of any kind (food/water, pencils, folders/scripts, hats, clothing, props)

  • All persons should avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

  • Most importantly, if you or anyone you live/work with are experiencing symptoms of illness of ANY kind (headache, body ache, fatigue, coughing, sore throat, runny nose, sneezing, etc.) you must stay home. 


 

Thank you for your cooperation!
