COVID 19 Policies

While participating in events held at Imagine NEPA, consistent with CDC guidelines, participants are encouraged to practice hand hygiene, “social distancing” and wear face coverings to reduce the risks of exposure to COVID-19. Because COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is spread mainly from person-to-person contact, Imagine NEPA has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19. However, Imagine NEPA cannot guarantee that its participants, volunteers, partners, or others in attendance will not become infected with COVID-19. 

Participation in classes, workshops, and events (including any related travel) carries with it certain inherent risks related to COVID-19 transmission that cannot be eliminated regardless of the care taken to avoid such risks. Inherent Risks may include, but are not limited to,  (1) the risk of coming into close contact with individuals or objects that may be carrying COVID-19;  (2) the risk of transmitting or contracting COVID-19, directly or indirectly, to or from other individuals; and (3) injuries and complications ranging in severity from minor to catastrophic, including death, resulting directly or indirectly from COVID-19 or the treatment thereof. Parents and Participants over the age of 18 will be asked to sign a waiver to accept and assume all risk of loss, personal injury, sickness, death, damage, and expense arising from such Inherent Risks and acknowledge that Imagine NEPA LLC will not assume any responsibility or liability for personal injury or damages caused by COVID-19.

safe. The well-being of our students and their family members is our top priority.
