We would like to provide you with some additional information about Covid protocols in our classroom. Wisely, the Boston Sea Rovers are mandating masking in all indoor spaces, and GoAskErin and Newmediasoup take covid very seriously. We’re completely vaccinated, and though we don’t require proof of vaccination to take one of our workshops, we will require that everyone mask up and socially distance. We’ll provide masks, hand sanitizer, regularly clean all surfaces between classes and run a HEPA air purifier 24-7. All of our classes have a limited number of participants.
