Coronavirus (Covid 19) & Our Response

(Updated March 24, 2020)

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. Below you will find an updated list of The Clearing's response to this ongoing health threat.


  • Jens Jensen Visitor Center Closed

    Given the situation, we have decided to close the Jens Jensen Visitor Center to the public until May 1st. This is the building that houses the office and Bookstore.

  • Office Will Remain Open But Closed to Foot Traffic

    The Clearing office will continue to observe regular business hours, but will only be able to respond by phone and email.

  • Class Cancellations

    As of today, we have not cancelled any classes. If this changes, and we do decide to cancel one or more weeks, we will notify all of the guests registered for a cancelled week a minimum of 30 days before the start of that week.


The Clearing will continue to follow all the recommendations about community gatherings and best practices from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services. We will announce any general program or operational changes on this webpage, through an email and on social media.

Be well, stay safe and good health.
