At OVATIONS the safety of students, teaching artists and community is always of utmost importance. Effective Monday 8/23, all persons entering OVATIONS studio for a performance or event will be required to show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 or a negative test from the past 72 hours, along with a matching photo ID. Proof of vaccination can be your physical vaccine card or a photo of your card.
All persons inside our studio must wear a mask at all times regardless of vaccination status. Per our Montgomery County’s indoor mask mandate all performers will be masked. Should the indoor mask mandate be lifted we will re-evaluate for performers ONLY; all audience members will continue to be required to wear a mask while inside OVATIONS studio.
Regardless of vaccination status all students are required to provide a negative covid test within 72hrs of their first rehearsals/or classes. A second negative covid test is required 72hrs within starting tech week for productions.
Finally as an extra commitment to the wellbeing of our community we are requiring all OVATIONS teaching artists to be fully vaccinated.
What proof of full vaccination will you accept?
At this time, we can accept your physical vaccination card or a photo of your vaccination card. The name on the card must match the name on your photo ID. Full vaccination means that it’s been at least 14 days since your second Pfizer or Moderna shot, or since your single J&J shot.
What type of test result will you accept?
We will accept documented (either printed or digital) negative VIRAL test results from a test taken within 72 hours before the show. The documentation must include the type of test, the healthcare entity that issued the test, the test date, and the name of the person being tested. At-home self tests will not be accepted.
Will OVATIONS teaching artists be following the same guidelines?
All staff working in our venues are required to be fully vaccinated.
