As the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to develop, the health and well-being of our producers, workshop participants, and members of the public that visit our facility, are a top priority. With that concern in mind, AIM is taking for following steps effective immediately.
All AIM classes will be suspended through the end of the month. We will reassess the situation next week, and provide already enrolled participants information about rescheduling. We're very sorry for any inconvenience this causes, but feel this social distancing act is necessary to protect the well-being of our members and the community.
For the time being the AIM production facility remains open. This may change depending on the recommendations of Arlington County Health Department. At this time, we're asking all individuals that enter the facility, to take the following precautions:
DO NOT come to the AIM facility if you feel sick. Even if you don't suspect COVID-19, it is important to minimize potential spread of all illnesses.
Please wash your hands as soon as you enter the facility. Please skip sign-in computer and go directly to the washroom or kitchen and wash your hands. In addition, you will find hand sanitizer and hand lotion at the front desk.
Staff and trained volunteers will regularly wipe down all production areas and equipment with disinfecting wipes. Please do not do this yourself unless you have been instructed to do so by staff.
Consider minimizing the number of people you invite to be in person guests or audience. Consider phone or Skype interviews where possible.
Please make sure AIM has an evergreen (non-date specific / with no embedded promos) program available for air in the event that we have to close down the facility or you are not able to deliver a new program.
We will be providing more information as the situation develops. Below you will find some resources with information for best safety practices:
