COVID-19 Guidelines for Students

Keeping You Safe:

    • Proof of COVID-19 vaccination (you can get yours quickly here)
    • Proof of negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to each class
    • Documentation of medical exemption
  • We maintain increased sanitization procedures around the building, including regularly disinfecting high-touch surfaces (door handles, Point-of-Sale machines, bathrooms, etc.), disinfectant misting (daily and between audiences)
  • All students are required to wear a mask within the building at all times, in accordance with City of Edmonton bylaw and Province of Alberta restrictions
  • Rapid Fire continually works closely to assess hazard mitigation for all participants
  • The workshop space is large with high ceilings, and class sizes are kept small to protect you and other participants, making it very easy to maintain social distancing throughout the class
