Dear Friends of the Spring Lake Community House and Theatre,
The health and safety of our students, staff, and patrons is our biggest priority as we follow the developing situation around the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the New Jersey area. We encourage everyone in the community to listen to facts provided by sources such as the Center for Disease Control and Prevention to best understand what is happening and how to stay safe.
Unless the situation changes, the Spring Lake Community House and Theatre intends to continue with all regularly scheduled programs and events. Our workshop and dance classes will continue to meet at their regular times, and our spring production of Monty Python’s Spamalot will open Friday, March 20th.
The Spring Lake Community House and Theatre is following guidance laid out by the CDC and healthcare professionals that we are in communication with to best protect everyone within our building.
We are increasing the frequency of cleaning surfaces in various areas of the building. These surfaces include all counters, tables, doorknobs, phones, keyboards, pianos, chairs, dance floors, ballet bars, and any other areas that frequently come in contact with staff, students, performers, and patrons. We are also making sure to have enough cleaning and hygienic materials including soap and paper towels in all bathrooms. We have alcohol based sanitizer placed throughout the building as well.
We are asking our teachers, directors, and staff members to take time to emphasize the importance of washing hands and general hygiene with all students and performers.
Here are some things that everyone can do to help:
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or sleeve.
• Wash your hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after using the restroom,
before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
• Get your flu shot—it is never too late!
• Stay home if you are feeling sick, including fever, cough, or shortness of breath. Call your doctor and let him/her know your symptoms and travel history.
