Covid-19 Related Workshop Cancellations
If you have been exposed to Covid-19 within 14 days of the workshop and are not fully vaccinated, or if you have been fully vaccinated and are experiencing symptoms of Covid-19 following possible exposure, please email us as soon as possible so that we can reschedule you for a future date. Non-covid related cancellations are subject to our standard workshop cancellation policy below.
