COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS

TOP PRIORITY: Keeping students and instructors safe from COVID-19 during in-studio activities.  

Even though the studio has re-opened for in-studio classes, we need to remain diligent with protecting the health of students, instructors, and the community. 
Please take time to review this comprehensive list of the measures we will be taking as precautions against COVID-19. Our list was developed based off of the required and recommended guidelines published by the ODH.
 
We reserve the right to change/update these measures at any time pending guidance from the Ohio Department of Health,  the CDC, and the World Health Organization.   
It will take EVERYONE'S participation to ensure the success of these measures
