Education Planning
in a
Covid 19 World

THE EVER MUTATING VIRUS

In the spring of 2022, Dr. Fauci stated that the BA.2 variant is 50% to 60% more transmissible than Omnicron.   The virus is here to stay and we will stay safe and up to date.  We are fortunate enough to have a 9 foot by 4 foot professional conference table which provides social distance seating.  We also have a dedicated air purifier in the shop, a separate circulation fan and two very large outside windows.  Our main work table located on the opposite side of the room.  It will accommodate simultaneous separate activity from the conference table.  Surface areas and tools will be sanitized along with other safety measures as circumstances require.

REMOTE MENTORING

Periodic all-member Zoom sessions will be held as activities require.  We also can and have used Zoom to conduct portions of our  Big Sister - Little Sister programming with Music Inc.   

REMOTE REPAIR ACTIVITY

To date we have not seen the need  to employ this option, but certain repairs might lend themselves to a take-home kit, and follow on Zoom sessions.      

COVID AND THE FUTURE

It is now obvious that good strategic planning requires that we maintain facility in both in-person and remote  learning.
