BGB Vaccination and
Covid Safety Policy

At this time, some of our classes will continue Online, others will be conducted at The BGB Studio in North Hollywood.

Everyone who enters our Studio space in North Hollywood is required to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination, including a booster shot as soon as you are eligible in accordance with CDC guidelines. All BGB teachers and staff who work in-person at the Studio have also been fully vaccinated and boosted.

Mask wearing is optional inside the Studio and based on each actor's individual choice. We reserve the right to return to a mask mandatory situation at any time to protect the health and safety of our community.

We will always prioritize the health and safety of our BGB community and are continually evaluating the safety of in-person classes based on CDC, local and state guidelines.

IF AN ACTOR TESTS POSITIVE:

After testing positive for COVID-19 and experiencing symptoms, an actor may return to class in person:

In order to return to class they must no longer have any symptoms, regardless of test result

After testing positive for COVID-19 but not experiencing symptoms, an actor may return to class in person:

If an actor tests positive and has recently been in class and the class was potentially exposed: We will evaluate on a case-by-case basis, based on the circumstance, duration, and timeline of exposure and possibly move the next class to Zoom. The BGB Studio staff will also contact the class directly to advise them if there was exposure during class.

IF AN ACTOR HAS BEEN EXPOSED TO COVID (outside of BGB Class):

If anyone has recently traveled or attended a large event or gathering, we strongly recommend that they get tested afterward to ensure that they are COVID-free as we all do our part to keep our BGB community safe.

We rely on your best judgment where needed and appreciate your diligence in keeping yourself and your BGB class community as safe as possible.

In the event that COVID-19 and variants prevent us from safely and comfortably conducting in-Studio classes, we will make the necessary adjustments to seamlessly continue our 8 week and ongoing classes online over Zoom. When you sign up for an in-Studio BGB class, the no-refund policy will still apply.
