The impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) is being felt globally and our community is not immune. We understand the concern and uncertainty you may be experiencing. Mindful of the constantly changing situation, we are discussing possible changes to our operations necessary to ensure the health and safety of our patrons. For now, we are remaining open. We will keep you informed of any changes that occur.
What are we doing?
- Phones and counters are being sanitized by the monitors and there is a hand sanitizer dispenser at the desk. As always, there is plenty of soap and water for washing hands.
- The last Family Clay Sunday for the winter session is this week and will be limited to glazing bisque fired projects.
- The Clay-A-Thon scheduled for Saturday, March 14, will also occur as scheduled. However, the one scheduled for March 28 is cancelled.
We are hoping that people make decisions about coming in to work based on their health situation.
What can you do?
- If you are ill, please don’t come in. We’ll love to see you when you recover.
- If you are in a high-risk group, please carefully weigh your situation when making a decision about coming down to the WAC.
- When you do come in, please be mindful of keeping a distance, preferably 3 feet or more, between your work area and the next person.
Thank you for being an incredible, caring community. Stay healthy, wash your hands, and you’ll be hearing from us as we try to deal with the crisis at hand.
