ODC COVID-19 Operation Guidelines

ODC COVID-19 Operation Guidelines
Updated May 6, 2021

ODC is listening to and following guidelines from the San Francisco Department of Public Health as it pertains to all of our in-person and campus activities.

We have a team of Health & Safety Coordinators on our staff and are working diligently to create plans that are safe and suitable for everyone as ODC is given permissions to reopen to the public for in-person activities.

Safety

All building occupants will observe COVID-19 safety guidelines including but not limited to: mandatory health screening questionnaire, temperature check upon arrival, 6’ social distancing, and face masks to be worn at all times.

Timeline

We anticipate reopening for public in-person activities as San Francisco and California move out of restrictive tiers. Announcements from local and state officials indicate that expanding permissions we receive from San Francisco’s Department of Public Health will still require us to follow health and safety protocols - this will likely mean requesting or requiring vaccine or negative test results, maintaining social distance and mask requirements and following requirements to limit capacity of indoor activities.

Given Governor Newsom’s announcement of June 15 as the target date to move California beyond the color-tier restrictions and blueprint, and the move of San Francisco into the yellow tier, ODC is prioritizing return to limited capacity indoor activity. We now anticipate being able to welcome members of the public into an initial, limited schedule of in-person classes indoors on ODC’s campus in late May.

In the meantime, all ODC classes, performances, and other events will continue to be held digitally.

We also plan to continue offering digital classes, eventually along with in-person classes. So don't worry if you have come to rely on and enjoy experiencing ODC online! We'll continue to offer access to this resource.
