CSHA COVID Protocols

December 2022 UPDATED Covid Protocols

CSHA continues to require mask wearing while on campus as it has shown great effectiveness in preventing the spread of Covid. CSHA does not require vaccinations nor does the school require the School Community to to disclose their vaccination status.  In addition to wearing masks, we are still screening the CSHA community and visitors.

Students, Staff, and Faculty will be asked to sign and comply with the following waiver:

CSHA Infection Control Student/Staff/Faculty Contract/Waiver 

Please read and sign below that you agree to follow these requirements:

I will be screened upon arrival in the building and wear my name badge visibly to display daily screening sticker.

I will practice meticulous hand hygiene and surface sanitation.

I will wear a mask at all times on campus, in classroom, and giving or receiving massage at Colorado School of Healing Arts (CSHA).

I will abide by all current and any new COVID / Flu / RSV / Mpox infection control related school protocols to keep students, instructors, and administrators safe.

I agree to inform the appropriate administrator and will NOT come to school if I become ill or experience any of these symptoms:

If I start to have symptoms while at school, I will notify my teacher and/or an administrator and leave school immediately. I will update the appropriate administrator as to my health status as it changes.

If I need to stay home due to COVID, Flu, RSV, Mpox, or any other communicable disease, I will provide requested documentation and work with administration and my instructors for continuing my learning plan at home by Zoom as applicable.

Note: If unable to attend any in-person or zoom classes, or labs or makeups for 14 consecutive days, I understand I may be required to go on a Leave of Absence.

I understand there are NO guarantees, and that while following these protocols will maximize safety and minimize the spread of any diseases, I may still be exposed to COVID or other infectious diseases.  I will take full responsibility for my health and will not hold the school accountable if I contract an infectious disease.  I will contact the school with ANY concerns to discuss my options.
