COVID-19 Safety Information
All attendees (with the exception of youth under age 5) are required to present proof of COVID vaccination by bringing your original vaccination document or a photo/digital copy + ID to the workshop. Youth under 5 may provide a negative COVID-19 test within 48 hours of the class. For the duration of the workshop, attendees will be asked to wear masks, maintain social distancing where possible and sanitize hands between use of materials or equipment. Please do not come to Vera if you test positive for COVID-19, are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms or if you had a recent exposure to someone with COVID-19.
There is one short (~5") footstep to access the lighting console in Vera's mainstage area. The venue has two floor levels, and most classes take place on the lower level. A single-person lift provides access between backstage on the first floor, the stage platform, and the recording studio on the second floor. Patrons may also access each level by taking the outdoor ramp pathways on the north and south sides of the building. Entrance and inside doorways are not automatic and may require assistance to open. Gender neutral bathrooms are located on the first floor and include ADA accessible stalls and sinks. Please contact Levin at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or accommodation requests.
