Vocal Euphoria Vaccination Policy

As a member/tenant, Vocal Euphoria follows the same COVID-19 protocols as The Workaround

What does this mean for the students, parents and guests of Vocal Euphoria?

  • Anyone over the age of 12, who enter the Workaround must provide proof of vaccination. 
  • Until a vaccine passport is in place, proof can be shown at the door upon arrival as:
      1. a printout (which will be handed back to you) or
      2. a PDF or JPG (displayed on your phone)
  • Providing proof of full vaccination is only necessary one time, and your status will not be kept on file. We will note your rapid test exemption status within The Workaround secure member platform, which is only available to limited senior staff. We will not store or disclose this information publicly or within The Workaround community.
  • If you are unvaccinated or choose not to disclose your status, you must take a rapid test at the door prior to every visit on-site.
  • Once you provide proof of vaccination status, you will be exempt from rapid testing at the door.
  • Rapid tests are free and take approximately 5-10min. Unfortunately this means that it could take up the first 10 min of your scheduled lesson time but you also have the option of taking a rapid test between the hours of 8am - 2pm Monday through Friday so the Workaround staff can assist you with a self-administered COVID-19 rapid test at the door. If you are coming to The Workaround after hours or on weekends, we need the test completed by Friday at 2pm before your arrival.
  • If you test positive, (or you choose not to take a rapid test) in-person lessons will resume online via zoom until you test negative. There are no refunds.
  • Masks must continue to be worn in all indoor shared spaces in accordance with the City of Toronto’s mask by-law

It is important that both everyone coming to Vocal Euphoria work in a safe and healthy environment. Thank you for your patience and understanding during these unusual times.

Protocols

Beginning Tuesday September 7, 2021, anyone over the age of 12, including members, guests and staff who enter The Workaround must take a rapid test at the front desk upon arrival, unless you are fully vaccinated and able to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination to our staff team at the door. Once you provide proof of vaccination status, we will exempt you from rapid testing at the door.

Rapid tests are only available until September 22, when by law we will be a vaccination only facility.

If you are unvaccinated or choose not to disclose your status, you must take a rapid test at the door prior to every visit on-site. Masks must continue to be worn in all indoor shared spaces in accordance with the City of Toronto’s mask by-law. 100% of our staff team is fully vaccinated.

The Workaround is a shared workspace with childcare on-site and it has always been our top priority to ensure the children here are well cared for. While we don’t yet have a full picture of the risks with COVID and children, we are proceeding with caution while protecting the best interests of our vulnerable population - in our case - children under the age of five.

For that reason, we strongly encourage anyone who enters The Workaround to be fully vaccinated. If you are not, or would prefer not to disclose, we require that you check in between the hours of 8am - 2pm Monday through Friday so our staff can assist you with a self-administered COVID-19 rapid test at the door. If you are coming to The Workaround after hours or on weekends, we need the test completed by Friday at 2pm before your arrival. If you are on-site for an after hours event, you must complete a rapid test with your event manager or representative who made the booking.

Our policy is in place for staff (all of whom are fully vaccinated), members, family members and guests.

Providing proof of full vaccination is only necessary one time, and your status will not be kept on file. We will note your rapid test exemption status within our secure member platform, which is only available to limited senior staff. We will not store or disclose this information publicly or within The Workaround community.
