Updated COVID19 Safety Plan for Kingston Ceramics Studio


A. Physical Distancing:

  1. All work stations have been separated so that they do not face or abut one another and have 6 feet of distance between them.

  2. During clean up: Only one person at each sink at a time, staggered clean up.


B. Personal Protective Equipment:

  1. All guests are required to provide proof of vaccination. Children must be vaccinated by January 1st, 2022 to continue attending the studio.

  2. Masks are optional unless NYS or Ulster County officials mandate them.


D. Screening Process:

  1. Class appointment cancellations due to illness are excused, and class pass expiration dates have been waived, so as not to encourage people to come to class when ill or exposed to an ill person. Classes will be rescheduled.

  2. All customers making appointments will be required to sign our terms & conditions for using the space.

E. Contact Tracing Reporting:

  1. If an assistant or instructor tests positive for COVID-19, KCS will report that information to the state and local health departments, and will comply with all tracing efforts, including contacting individuals who may have been exposed.

  2. In the case of anyone present at the studio  testing positive for COVID-19, we will clean the tables, tools, wheels, stools, and all handles with a 99.9% effective germicide such as Lysol from a local supermarket.

  3. In the case of a positive COVID-19 test in the studio community, I will contact all possible affected people by using the information in our reservation system.

F. Community Resources:

  1. If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence, you are not alone. Get help here.
