An Update on COVID-19

While continuing to put the health and safety of our community first, Dance Lab programs are held in person following our Academy COVID-19 Guidelines (guidelines subject to change). Out of an abundance of caution, masking will be required for all individuals while at Joffrey Tower and South Loop Studios until further notice.

IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE JOFFREY BALLET'S DUTY TO PROVIDE AND MAINTAIN AN ENVIRONMENT THAT IS FREE OF KNOWN HAZARDS, JOFFREY HAS ADOPTED A POLICY REQUIRING ALL STAFF, FACULTY, AND ELIGIBLE STUDENTS/PARTICIPANTS TO BE FULLY VACCINATED AGAINST COVID-19 TO PARTICIPATE IN PROGRAMMING AND ACTIVITIES AT JOFFREY PROPERTIES:

ALL COVID-19 VACCINE ELIGIBLE INDIVIDUALS ARE REQUIRED TO SHOW PROOF OF FULL VACCINATION TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY IN-PERSON CLASSES OR ACTIVITIES HELD AT JOFFREY TOWER, SOUTH LOOP STUDIOS, OR SPECIFIED PERFORMANCE LOCATIONS. 

EFFECTIVE FEBRUARY 1, 2022, FULL VACCINATION INCLUDES BOOSTER SHOTS FOR ALL THOSE ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE THEM PER CDC GUIDELINES. BOOSTER SHOTS SHOULD BE RECEIVED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE ONCE AN INDIVIDUAL IS ELIGIBLE.

VALID PROOF OF VACCINATION INCLUDES VALID PHOTO ID (AGE 16+) AND VACCINATION CARD, PHOTO/COPY OF VACCINATION CARD, DIGITAL RECORD OR APP, OR PRINTED RECORD FROM VACCINE PROVIDER.

MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING REQUIREMENTS WILL BE IN PLACE FOR JOFFREY FACILITIES WHEN IDENTIFIED AS WITHIN A HIGH COMMUNITY LEVEL BY THE CDC, OR IF REQUIRED BY STATE OR LOCAL AUTHORITIES, COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AGREEMENTS, OR A PARTICULAR PERFORMANCE VENUE. IN THE EVENT MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING ARE NOT REQUIRED, INDIVIDUAL VOLUNTARY MASK USE AND SOCIAL DISTANCING SHALL BE ACCEPTED AND RESPECTED.

INDIVIDUALS AGE 2 AND OLDER WHO ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR THE COVID-19 VACCINE WILL BE REQUIRED TO WEAR A MASK AND ALWAYS MAINTAIN SIX FEET OF SOCIAL DISTANCE WHILE ONSITE. ANYONE WORKING DIRECTLY WITH THESE INDIVIDUALS IN A STUDIO WILL REMAIN MASKED WHILE IN THE STUDIO WITH THE INDIVIDUALS.
