During a Pandemic

6 Point COVID-19 Safety Plan

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Collaboraction continues to produce artistic work. 

The safety of our community, artists, and staff is our highest priority. Collaboraction uses a 6 Point COVID-19 Safety Plan that consisted of Mask Requirements, Maximum 10 Person Occupancy, Daily Check-in Procedures, Professional Disinfecting/Cleaning, Social Distancing and Data Tracking. All artists are given the option to work from their home and were encouraged to make any custom safety requests. 

In an effort to keep our community safe and healthy Collaboraction has implemented the following policies:

  1. Mask Requirement: Everyone is required to wear a mask while in Collaboraction's building. The only exception is for a solo performer inside the designated performing area during their specific filming time only. 

  2. Maximum Occupancy: We only allow a maximum of 10 people in a room at a time. 

  3. Daily Check-in: There is a mandatory, daily, in-person or online check-in procedure, symptom and temperature screening of every person before they enter the facility, in accordance with state and local public health authorities. Any in-person health checks will be conducted safely and respectfully, in a way that helps maintain social distancing guidelines. 

  4. Professional Cleaning/Disinfecting: The Flat Iron Arts Building public spaces are cleaned and disinfected at least once a week, with bathrooms and common surfaces cleaned daily and with certain surfaces, multiple times a day. Collaboraction spaces during filming are cleaned daily. We also clean and disinfect performance areas and commonly touched surfaces in between access to the space by different performance groups. This includes cleaning/disinfecting water vessels, seats and armrests, restrooms, doorknobs, mirrors, garbage cans, dressing rooms and more.

  5. Social Distancing: Social distancing means keeping space between yourself and other people outside of your home, including while at Collaboraction's spaces. We require that people whithin our spaces practice social or physical distancing stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) from other people.

  6. Data Tracking: Every time a person comes to Collaboraction's space they must fill out the check-in form which gives Collaboraction permission to share data, allowing us to support contact tracing, if the needs arises.
