COVID-19 Safety Guidelines and Policies

ICP requires all staff, faculty and students to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The CDC recommends staying up to date with all COVID-19 vaccines, including boosters when eligible. As per the CDC, everyone is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series, such as the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines, or two weeks after the single-dose J&J/Janssen vaccine.

If students are not in compliance, they may be automatically withdrawn from the class and refunded the remainder of class time. Currently, masks are strongly recommended but not required in the ICP School.

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 a course or workshop. Those joining a course or workshop 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. All travelers, domestic and international, should continue to follow all CDC travel requirements.

If You Are Diagnosed with COVID-19

ICP community members (staff, students, faculty) who test positive for COVID-19 should isolate for 5 days. After 5 days, if you are fever-free for 24 hours without the use of medication, and your symptoms are improving, or you never had symptoms, you may end isolation after day 5. You should wear a high-quality mask through day 10. If you know that were exposed, wear a high-quality mask for 10 days and get tested on day 5.

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.
