Beginning Fall term 2024 and continuing until further notice:  

CVEC strongly encourages all participants to be fully up to date with all COVID vaccinations, boosters, and other medical preventatives as their personal health situation may allow.  However, CVEC no longer requires COVID vaccinations and boosters for all persons attending in-person classes.

CVEC does not require that masks be worn by students or instructors, and none of our class venues requires masks. Of course, any student is welcome to wear a mask at any time or at all times. However, if any student should request that all others in a class wear masks, there is no expectation of compliance with that request. In classroom settings, it’s difficult to hear people speaking when they wear masks.  

CVEC instructors and students will notify the Executive Director or Curriculum Director if they have tested positive for COVID or were exposed to someone who tested positive, and should not return to CVEC classes until they complete the appropriate CDC-recommended quarantine and have had a negative COVID test. CVEC will notify the class venue when either a positive test or exposure has been reported.  

This policy is subject to change based on CDC guidelines and changing circumstances.
