2024 Winter Program
& COVID-19 Response

Updated 08.04.23

Dear Friends,

In an effort to keep our students, instructors, volunteers, staff and community safe, The Clearing’s staff and Board of Directors are monitoring developments closely with respect to the recommendations of agencies like the Wisconsin Department of Health Services. While changes to The Clearing’s Winter Covid-19 Response may be made at a moments notice, you’ll likely see the following safety protocols in place when attending a 2024 Winter Program class:

We appreciate your respecting The Clearing's (and off-campus locations’) requests/requirements listed below for the health and safety of your instructor, fellow students, and staff by noting the following for all 2024 Winter Program classes. Thank you!

Enjoy your class!

  • The Clearing no longer requires proof of vaccination for Winter Program classes. However, some instructors or venues may require proof of vaccination. This will be noted in the online class description affected.

  • If you are experiencing any of the symptoms related to COVID-19 infection, please stay home.

  • The Clearing is currently not requiring students and instructors to wear a mask when indoors. Masking is optional. Disposable masks will be available, if needed.

  • A hand sanitizer station will be at all on-campus classroom entrances and hand washing can be done in restrooms.

  • All Clearing furnaces are equipped with an iWave air purifier system.

  • You are welcome to bring personal beverages for the day; coffee (regular and decaf) and tap water will be provided on The Clearing property.
