How the APA will handle Covid concerns for 2022-2023
This information is subject to updates
based on information
from public health organizations.
UPDATED COVID Procedures as of October 1, 2022
The APA will be recommending the following:
Having a mask on hand at arrival gives the parents and students the added protection in the event that other people coming and going from our venue present a health concern. As case numbers may rise and fall in our area with little warning, please be considerate. Weather permitting, we will move portions of our class outdoors and masks are not requested outdoors. Our staff and any assistants will be fully masked during indoor activities. Many of our performances are planned for outdoor spaces where masks will not be required for participants.
APA follows the same guidelines as the Bibb County School System. You can read their statements here:
Wearing a mask is highly encouraged but not required.
Masks are optional in schools, BCSD buildings and on school buses.
Masks are still required for those individuals returning to school or work during the isolation phase.
COVID-19 vaccinations and/or boosters are not required but are strongly recommended and encouraged for any eligible individual. Find a vaccination site at www.vaccines.gov. Learn more about pediatric COVID-19 vaccine recommendations at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/recommendations/children-teens.html.
Individuals should remain home if they feel unwell and contact their medical provider if they are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19.
Vaccination status is now a question on our registration form since many local venues require vaccination for performances in their space.
AT THIS TIME WE ENCOURAGE AND RECOMMEND VACCINATION, BUT DO NOT REQUIRE VACCINATION FOR OUR STUDENTS, PERFORMERS OR STAFF.
