COVID-19 Safety Protocols and Guidelines *This is an evolving list and subject to change. Last update: 3/12/2021
NEW: Vaccination Requirements
Beginning with our December classes, Botpots Christchurch Pottery Studio will require all adult students to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Students are required to submit proof of their COVID vaccine Pass. This policy applies to all adult students enrolled in weekly classes and one off classes.
Should you elect not to provide proof of vaccination, please do not enroll in our in person classes. You can opt for an online class available in January 2022.
Masks will continue to be required for all students and teachers regardless of vaccination status.
Entry to the store does require proof of vaccination. All visitors will be required to wear a mask.
Request for Exemption To assist any student who has a qualifying medical condition that contraindicates the vaccination, or who objects to being vaccinated on the basis of sincerely held religious beliefs and practices, Botpots Christchurch Pottery Studio will determine if a reasonable accommodation can be provided. To request an accommodation for one of the above reasons, please notify us via email at email@example.com to have your request reviewed.
COVID-19 Testing and Tracking:
Students can NOT enter the studio: - for 10 days after a positive COVID-19 test*
If you have been around someone you suspect or know was positive within the last 14 days
If you have any COVID-19 symptoms Botpots Christchurch approval needed to return on-site
Please contact us to determine when you will be allowed at the Studio.
All people coming to Botpots Christchurch Pottery Studio must inform us if they test positive or have been in contact with someone who has tested positive so we can take appropriate actions even if you are vaccinated.
We will respect your privacy while working to prevent the spread of COVID-19. If we become aware that a student or staff member has tested positive for COVID-19 or has the symptoms of COVID-19, we will follow current best practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We will notify anyone they were in contact with during the time they were at Botpots Christchurch Pottery Studio.
Anyone who was in contact with the infected person will be able to return to the studio once they have been cleared based on a negative COVID 19 test result.
Safety Protocols in our Studios:
All students are required to wear a mask at all times. You should bring a mask with you, bandanas and one-way respirators are not acceptable face coverings.
We have masks at the Studio if you happen to forget.
If you aren’t wearing a mask or refuse to do so when required, you will be asked to leave. If you have been vaccinated, you must still follow mask wearing guidance for your class.
All pottery classes are by appointment only. No stopping by during times that are not scheduled. If you need to come at an unscheduled time, you must email firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment.
Please do not arrive earlier than 15 min before the start of your class. If you are early for your scheduled time slot, wait outside the Studio until your assigned time.
No eating in the studio, you may eat outside at your discretion.
When you come into the Studio, please sanitize your hands. We have hand sanitizer at all entrances.
Please reach out to us with questions or concerns about protocols so we can continue to update.
Looking forward to seeing you in the Studio soon!
