COVID-19

UPDATED: September 29th 2021

STUDENTS AND ATTENDING FACE TO FACE EVENTS AT ITS

Students are required to present proof of vaccination in order to begin class on the first day of attendance. Information regarding proof of full vaccination here.
Students will be informed at the time of registration that they will be asked to furnish proof of vaccination, and again in their class reminder, and again 24 hours before classes begin.
Facilities are closed to the general public but open for students who are attending classes at ITS.
Performances and events are ticketed, and social distancing cap on numbers/attendance is strictly enforced. Proof of vaccination will also be required to attend performances, workshops and events at ITS.
Where there is a request to be exempt from the vaccination requirement, the issue is to be addressed directly with our General Manager: kelly@improvtheatresydney.com.au. Students may not attend class while the matter is being considered.

ITS ONLINE

There are no changes for students who are enrolled for online classes and workshops. If there are changes, you will be contacted directly by your teacher or ITS management.

ITS FACILITIES

Anyone who attends ITS facilities, including those we sublease or rent must:
Wear a mask. There are lawful reasons for not wearing a mask. If you are exempt from wearing a mask, you will need to carry documentation such as a medical certificate, letter from your health practitioner or disability support provider, or a statutory declaration. You should expect be asked to show this documentation.
Check-in using the Service NSW QR code; and
Observe social distancing.
Please stay at home if you are unwell.
More information about the NSW Public Health Order and other restrictions is available on the NSW Government COVID-19 site.

OUR CLEANING PROTOCOL

Hand sanitiser and disinfectant wipes available for students and staff.
Group spaces and furnishings (such as chairs) are cleaned after every class.
Our timetable allows extra time for our team to disinfect equipment and surfaces between classes.
We’ve always done this, but now more than ever we’re spending extra time to be sure our classes are at their best.
Staff will be paying special attention to cleaning high touch items such as door handles.

OUR STAFF AND FACULTY

We’ve made face coverings available for all of our staff and will be worn at all times.
Our management have all completed the COVID Infection Control Training provided by the Australian Government and are ready to go.
We’ve put extra manpower in to keeping our facilities clean. You’ll find our teams scrubbing and wiping multiple times throughout the day.
Hands off instruction and scenes: we know this means less high fives between your fellow students and with staff, but you will have the ability to express yourself, develop story lines and characters, all without touching. We promise that you will have a great time, regardless of high fives being out of the question.
As the government guidelines advise, please stay home if you are unwell, wash your hands and practice good hygiene and maintain physical distance. We also ask that if your health circumstances have changed, please re-complete a health check.
