Enhanced cleaning protocols are in place as well as face-covering/mask requirements for all participants in CYT Phoenix programming.
Please arrive on time, but not early. For the purposes of social distancing, please do not congregate outside the entry. Parents may enter the building on the first day, but only to quickly drop off (please wear a mask). Students and Teaching Artists will be checked for fever with a contactless thermometer on entry. Our lobby is closed to parents during class time. At dismissal please wait outside on the sidewalk to pick up your child. We will open the door and dismiss them one by one.
A mask must be worn by all students, teaching artists and staff at CYT. This must cover the nose and mouth and be paper or fabric to comply with the City of Phoenix emergency proclamation and Maricopa County mask mandate regarding the wearing of masks. A clear plastic face shield of some kind that still covers the nose and mouth can be requested as an alternative. Face coverings may only be removed if students are eating and drinking, or if the class/rehearsal has been moved outdoors in some instances.
Illness Protocols for Families
Please don't send your child(ren) to CYT class if they aren't feeling well or if anyone in your household is experiencing the symptoms of COVID-19. If a household member is currently being tested for COVID-19 we request that your student(s) stay home from the studio until the test results are confirmed. We are using the following medical guidance for when students can return to the studio after infection or exposure:
- For anyone Student or Parent who is sick with Covid, they need to remain at home until 10 days after onset of symptoms, symptoms are improving AND they are fever free for 24 hours.
- Students with a positive family member must stay away from the studio until 10 days from the most recent positive test in the family and then they can return.
- There is no need to get any follow up testing and no need to have a negative test before they return.
If your student needs to take time away from class/rehearsals due to COVID-19, we will work with you on an appropriate plan for activities they can do at home until it is safe for them to return to the studio.
