Will I have to wear a face mask while participating in the program?

​Masks will be required during all indoor events (with the exception of eating or drinking while maintaining distancing). Due to the intimate nature of the workshop activities, we will also encourage participants to avoid close, unmasked social activities, including social gatherings and dining with other unvaccinated people, in the days leading up to their arrival and throughout their stay in New Mexico. 

Will I need to sign a waiver?

While participating in events held or sponsored by the Association of Print Scholars (“APS”), consistent with CDC guidelines, participants are encouraged to practice hand hygiene, “social distancing” and wear face coverings to reduce the risks of exposure to COVID-19. Because COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is spread mainly from person-to-person contact, APS has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19. However, APS cannot guarantee that its participants, volunteers, partners, or others in attendance will not become infected with COVID-19.

As a result, all participants will be provided with a liability waiver and release of claims from APS and 10 Grand Press.

What are the testing protocols prior to arrival and during my stay in New Mexico?

All event attendees are required to present proof of a recent negative COVID-19 PCR test within 36 hours prior to arrival and will be asked to submit to a rapid COVID-19 test, provided by workshop organizers, on the day of arrival and the third day of the workshop.

Please keep documentation of any COVID-19 tests readily available in the event of an exposure or other public health needs.

What if I exhibit symptoms prior to the start of the workshop?

Visitors cannot attend the workshop, nor continue in the workshop activities, if they are exhibiting symptoms, have been diagnosed with COVID-19, or have otherwise been instructed to quarantine or isolate. 

If you have a question not listed, please feel free to contact us via email at workshops@printscholars.org.
