2022 Workshop Program
& COVID-19 Response

Dear Friends,

With regard to COVID-19, much care still needs to be taken for classes to take place. We appreciate your respecting The Clearing's requests/requirements listed below for the health and safety of instructors, fellow students, and staff by noting the following for all 2022 Workshop Program classes. Thank you!

Any information regarding changes to the class experience made necessary by COVID-19 will be posted on The Clearing’s website,, will be sent in future emails, will be included in class confirmation letters.

  • The Clearing will require everyone who comes for a Workshop Program class to be vaccinated per the CDC’s guidelines on booster eligibility and provide proof of vaccination. Full vaccination includes any boosters for which you are eligible and is required for all workshop participants. The Clearing staff are subject to the same requirements.

  • If you are experiencing any of the symptoms related to COVID-19 infection, please stay home. All class cancellations this year will include a full refund of any tuition payment minus a $25 administrative fee made for a class.

  • The Clearing is currently not requiring students and instructors to wear a mask when indoors. Masking is optional.

  • Workspaces will be socially distanced, and classes will have limited, and in some cases, reduced headcount maximums than in previous years.

  • A hand sanitizer station will be at the classroom entrance and hand washing can be done in restrooms.

  • Windows may be open during class, if weather cooperates, for fresh air flow, so please bring a sweater or wrap, if you feel it is appropriate for your comfort. There is forced air furnace heat and air conditioning, if needed, as well, with an iWave air purifier system.

  • The Clearing will be providing individual boxed lunches vs. buffet-type lunches, as had been provided in the past.

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