COVID-19 Safety Guidelines and Policies

Up-to-date COVID-19 vaccinations are required for all members of the ICP community. In order to register for and attend onsite classes, students must upload proof of vaccination and of the most recently available booster shot, unless an exemption has been granted or the student is not yet eligible for the booster. If students are not yet eligible for the booster shot, we require that they upload proof of booster within 2 weeks after becoming eligible. In order to ensure compliance, ICP will be randomly auditing vaccination and booster records. If students are not in compliance, they may be automatically withdrawn from the class and refunded the remainder of class time. ICP requires that masks are worn while in class and in other public areas of ICP to protect the health and safety of all employees, students and visitors. We encourage students, faculty, and staff to wear a KN95 and/or KF94 mask at ICP.

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public space where people are present. We are working to keep you safe and healthy, but we cannot guarantee you won't be exposed to COVID-19 by visiting ICP or participating in this Continuing Education workshop. Those joining this class do so at their own risk of such exposure.

These policies and guidelines are subject to change by ICP at any time.

Not Feeling Well? Stay Home

Please do not visit ICP if you have a fever or any COVID-19 symptoms, have tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 14 days, or have had close contact with anyone who is confirmed or is suspected of having COVID-19. All travelers, domestic and international, should continue to follow all CDC travel requirements.

Wear a Mask Even if You are Vaccinated

Vaccinations are required for ICP faculty, volunteers and students in order to attend in-person classes. ICP requires masks to be worn while in class and in other public areas of ICP, to protect the health and safety of all employees, students, and visitors.

If You Are Diagnosed with COVID-19

If, at any time over the duration of the class, you are diagnosed with COVID-19, let us know so that we can implement contact tracing protocols and take any necessary measures to mitigate further exposure.

Follow Directions

Please adhere to any verbal communications given by ICP faculty or volunteers.

To request an exemption from the COVID-19 vaccination policy, please reach out to us at least five days prior to the start date of the class at [email protected].

Important Notice for Online classes

Please note that faculty may record one or more sessions of the course you will be attending via Zoom. This might be done, for example, if the session will cover detailed technical processes or if the faculty knows that one or more students will be unable to attend that session. This will provide all students enrolled in that class the ability to re-watch the session. Such recordings are not kept permanently, but are deleted from ICP's system within 10 days from the date of the session.

By joining the class, you consent to such recordings. If you have concerns about being recorded, please discuss your options with the faculty. Recordings will not be available for one day workshops.
