Seattle Theatre Group (STG) Education and Community Engagements (ECE) takes health & safety as a high priority. By agreeing to participate in our programs you are agreeing to follow STG’s safety protocols:
Seattle Theatre Group reserves the right to conduct COVID-19 rapid testing throughout the program as needed in an effort to protect the health, safety and welfare of participants. This testing is being conducted, to the extent these tests continue to be made available by Seattle Theatre Group and will be provided at no cost to you.
COVID-19 Testing Information: The test that would be administered to you/ your student would be a rapid-antigen test. This test has been approved by the FDA under an emergency use authorization and involves the swabbing of you or your/ your child’s nasal passage in order to obtain a sample for testing. There are risks and benefits with undergoing a diagnostic test for COVID-19 and there may be a potential for false positive or false negative test results. Additionally, the actual test may cause slight discomfort to your/your child’s nose or throat during the collection process and for a short period of time thereafter. You will be provided with the results of your test, and it will be your responsibility to seek advice and treatment from your medical provider if necessary.
You/your child will receive an FDA authorized or approved antigen test to mitigate transmission of the virus. Testing may happen once a week or more often, as determined necessary by Seattle Theatre Group.
Testing can happen upon arrival to STG’s program and will be overseen by STG’s COVID Officer. If an individual tests positive with the antigen test, you/your child will be sent home. You may return to the program one-week after, at which point, you will need to provide a negative result from an antigen test administered on site, for free by an STG COVID Officer.
Reporting of test results will be done in a confidential manner consistent with state, city and federal regulations. Notification of exposed individuals shall occur in a way as to protect the confidentiality of the person with COVID-19 and in accordance with statutory confidentiality requirements. Should there be a positive result, STG will be immediately informed in a manner consistent with legal confidentially requirements.
Masking will be optional, subject to change as needed and if rapid antigen testing is conducted.
