COVID safety protocols @ Loretta

Loretta Studios and Gallery is taking extra precautions due to the 2019-2021 outbreak of the novel Coronavirus (COVID19), such as enhanced ventilation and sanitation/disinfecting procedures and health review in compliance with the Ottawa Public Health recommendations.

Symptoms of COVID19 infection include (but are not limited to): fever, fatigue, dry cough, shortness of breath, body aches and loss of smell or taste. Headaches, a sore throat and a runny nose are the most common signs associated with the Delta variant. If you are exhibiting any of these symptoms, please stay home.

We require that every guest wear a mask for the duration of their studio visit. Masks must cover both the mouth and nose at all times.

Our classes will have no more than 4 students in them so that we can ensure a safe distance between you. Fewer students also means that you will have plenty of individual attention from the teacher!

For any class involving glass blowing (blown beads, borosilicate hollow work, ... ) students will be provided with a specialized mask and a personal blow hose.

PLEASE NOTE: We will not require disclosure of your vaccination status, but for your safety and ours, classes are open only to people who are double vaccinated against covid-19. Thank you for your consideration and understanding.
