COVID-19 Rules, Regulations & Restrictions
Yestermorrow is following guidelines from the State of Vermont as we move forward with in-person classes. As of November 10, 2020 the state of Vermont has re-instated a mandatory quarantine requirement for anyone traveling to Vermont or returning to Vermont. This means that any one not currently living in Vermont must complete a 14-day quarantine or a 7-day quarantine with a negative test result before coming to Yestermorrow for a class. If you are unable to follow these guidelines, your registration will be cancelled.
Yestermorrow is strictly following the Vermont Department of Health and CDC Guidelines for reopening. For your reference, these guidelines are available here. For the purposes of Yestermorrow Design/Build School’s in-person courses, Vermont Department of Health and CDC guidelines that apply to employees or workers, also apply to instructors, students, and any other person associated with a course.
We have additional rules and regulations in effect for our on-campus courses. Our COVID-19 Policies are available here.
During normal times, we look at course enrollment 3 weeks before the start of a class. If we don't have a minimum number of people signed up to cover costs we cancel the class. Signing up at least a month before helps ensure that the class you’re interested in will run! Now we’re in a new world where cancellation calls aren’t just determined by student enrollment, but also by a global pandemic. As the timeline of this new reality makes itself known, there will likely be more course cancellations.
If we have to cancel a class that you’re registered for due to COVID we will waive all cancelation fees and you will get a full refund. In case of a cancelation, you also have the option to reallocate payments as a credit on your account to be used towards a future class. Doing this helps us as it is essentially an investment in Yestermorrow’s future (and yours!).
Our Fall 2020 - Spring 2021 course catalog is published online - take a look at our current course offerings. We may add additional courses as it feels safe, and are developing more online classes to keep you engaged. Any course that is listed on our website is open for registration. If a class catches your eye and fits your schedule, let us know you’re interested by registering with the 20% deposit! Doing so gives you something to look forward to, and also gives Yestermorrow a bit of certainty as we plan for our future.
We encourage you to register for a class, buy a gift certificate, or share this message with the makers, creators, dreamers, and DIYers in your life. Stay safe, stay healthy, and remember to think with your hands!
