A NOTE FROM MR. ANDREW

Health and Safety: All fall classes will follow COVID-19 safety procedures set forth by the CDC and State and will align with safety protocols based on guidance from Columbus Recreation and Parks and Columbus Public Health. You can learn more about Columbus Recreation and Parks’ COVID-19 response here. Specific safety protocols for each class will be communicated to students and families before class begins. If you have any questions about CATCO’s safety protocols this fall before registering, please contact Andrew Protopapas at aprotopapas@catco.org.

CATCO’s Vaccine Policy: The CATCO Education Team takes the safety of our students, families, and staff very seriously. In response to the rapidly changing safety guidelines from public health authorities regarding the highly transmittable COVID-19 Delta variant, CATCO is making the decision to require masks and vaccinations for all class participants, ages 12 and up.

Beginning September 1, 2021, we are mandating that all young people and adults, ages 12 and up, who enroll in CATCO education opportunities wear a mask at all times, regardless of vaccination status. Class participants must also show proof of vaccination OR a negative PCR test within 72 hours of participating in class. Participants who believe they have a medical or religious exemption from getting a vaccine, please reach out to Andrew Protopapas at aprotopapas@catco.org.

Thank you for helping us decrease the spread of COVID-19.
