On July 24, 2020 the Oregon Health Authority issued that all persons 5 and older must wear a face covering or face shield in all Oregon indoor spaces and outdoors space if 6 ft Social Distancing cannot be maintained.
This includes during our dance classes which are considered exercise and must be worn by all students Age 5 and up.
Dance instructors are required to wear face coverings as well and are giving additional breaks for hydration. Those dance programs that can be moved outside have been adjusted. Others due to heat cannot.
Crossroads has posted on our doors and as below are listing our Reasonable Accomdations policy for both access to the Gallery and for our Arts Education programs.
COVID- 19 Disability Accommodations for Face- Coverings
OHA Guidelines for Face Coverings as of 06/30/2020
“A business and a person responsible for indoor spaces open to the public are required to:
Require employees, contractors, volunteers, customers and visitors to wear a mask, face shield, or face covering.”
“Individuals who have a medical condition that makes it hard to breathe or a disability that prevents the individual from wearing a mask, face shield or face covering can request an accommodation to enable full and equal access to services, transportation, and facilities open to the public”
Crossroads can make the following reasonable accommodations to people who contact the Executive Director Ginger Savage at 541-523-5369 and request these accommodations.
For Guests of the Art Gallery:
The featured show is on our website each month to enjoy.
Or we can provide them with a clear face shield at no charge to wear to the gallery.
Crossroads is providing a special Senior Citizen/Immune Compromised time to view the art show every Thursday from 10 am to Noon. Face coverings are required but the goal is to have a smaller group of guests creating a more relaxed environment.
Crossroads is open Monday thru Saturday from 10 am to 5 PM.
For Arts Education Students:
Crossroads will provide to students at no charge a Face Shield. If this student needs to read lips the teacher will be required to wear a face shield.
We are getting a laptop for teachers to use at the art center for Web-EX meetings so that students can receive services from home. Students will need to pay for instruction.
Teachers are being provided the following options:
To set up the laptop in class so the student at home can engage with their fellow students and the teacher can instruct the whole class.
If that is too much for our teachers to handle, then they can arrange another time to work with you.
Another options is that students can send photographs of class work and can be coached by the instructor calling them on the phone
