Covid-19 Policies

Policies are subject to change as we all continue to learn and adapt. Thank you very much for your cooperation.

Craft Alliance is Missouri ArtSafe certified, meaning we practice safety standards and follow health guidelines that protect all who enter our building. Our guidelines and policies are designed to protect the health and safety of everyone. 

We have taken steps to create a safe environment, with enrollment caps on classes and workshops to accommodate appropriate social distancing, as well as following daily cleaning and safety procedures, and requirements for registering and completing a temperature check when you enter the building.  Masks are required of everyone entering the premises, including staff, students, and guests. Sharing of tools is discouraged and disinfectant wipes are made available so that tools may be wiped before and after use. Our policies are clearly posted in the building and online.

  • Everyone (staff, faculty, students, and guests) will wear face masks in public areas at all times. This includes studios, hallways, restrooms, kitchen, registration desk area, shop, and gallery.

  • Social distancing guidelines shall be followed. Signs are located throughout the building to provide guidance and reminders to follow appropriate social distancing and safety procedures.

  • Everyone entering the building shall apply hand sanitizer or wash hands when arriving.  Sanitizers and hand wipes are available throughout the building. Staff and guests are encouraged to wash frequently.

  • Upon entering the building all staff and guests shall sign in. This is for safety and contact tracing purposes. Contact information provided will not be used for any other purposes without prior permission. 

  • All of our employees are responsible for assessing their personal health on a daily basis. Any employee or visitor with any symptoms associated with COVID or experiencing a temperature of 100.4+ shall not enter the building and should follow governmental and health official guidelines for isolation and testing.  Anyone experiencing symptoms while on-site shall immediately isolate or leave the premises and follow governmental and health official guidelines for isolation and testing. This is for the safety of the Craft Alliance community.

  • Physical protective barriers are installed at key areas, including our registrar desk and gallery shop counter.

  •  Craft Alliance conforms to occupancy limits in accordance with government guidelines.

  • The premises are cleaned routinely with our outside cleaning service. In addition, high touch surfaces are wiped daily or more frequently with approved disinfectant cleaners.

  • No food is permitted in the studios. Staff may use the office kitchenette but must provide their own place ware and utensils.  All surfaces, including microwave and refrigerator, should be wiped down following each use.
