The following COVID-19 Safety Management Plan has been adopted for operation of the 2024 course:


Symptom Self-Screening: All staff and students should screen themselves before each class and outing for COViD-19 symptoms. 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 are not required, though any participant may choose to wear a face mask if it makes them more comfortable. Students and instructors are encouraged to consult their own health professionals and any local guidelines when deciding whether to wear a mask (optional) in congregate settings or while traveling by bus.

Compliance with Public Health Directives: The Course is subject to all applicable public health orders issued by governmental entities.

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.
