The following COVID-19 Safety Management Plan has been adopted for operation of the 2023 course:


Symptom Self-Screening: All staff and students should screen themselves before each class and outing for symptoms. A standard checklist will be made available prior to the first class. If anyone has symptoms, they must not attend class or outings. Students should not be concerned that missing a class or outing will foreclose meeting graduation requirements – it will not.

Face Masks:  Face masks will be required at all times while indoors and in congregate settings when COVID-19 community transmission level for the county in which the class is offered is at substantial or high as determined by data maintained by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention at:

Classroom lecturers will not be required to wear masks while speaking if they are at least 10 feet away from other individuals in the classroom.

Eating or Drinking in Classrooms:  If masks are required in the classroom because of moderate, high or substantial levels of COVID-19 transmission, there will be no eating or drinking in classrooms or auditorium. Individual sips of water/beverage will be tolerated as long as the individuals comply with the spirit of the face mask protocol above.

Bus Transportation:  Face masks will be required while traveling by bus. At least two staff members from each group should accompany students on the bus.

Exposure Management Plan:  WTC has adopted an Exposure Management Plan to provide detailed action steps in the event of a COVID-19 exposure during the course.

Notice of Potential Impacts: The course is subject to alteration, change, postponement, or cancellation based on public health considerations. Safety may dictate that in-person classes be transitioned to an online format. In the event of any alteration, change, postponement or cancellation prior to the first class, full refunds will be available. However, once the course starts, refunds are not possible. By enrolling in the course you agree to our refund policy.
