Dear Christina Cultural Arts Center Village,

Greetings and Universal Salutations! The purpose of this communication is to provide an update to our families and visitors regarding COVID-19 policies when entering our facility. Health and safety remain our top priority, and this governance will assure we are maintaining guidelines that vastly improve our chances of providing a safe facility.

Per Governor Carney’s most recent order, because of the nature of our summer operation with Early Childhood Education Arts Academy students, we are still requiring ALL individuals (fully vaccinated, partially vaccinated, or not vaccinated) to wear a mask. As per CDC guidelines and to provide additional guidance, unvaccinated and partially vaccinated individuals should continue to wear masks in public settings and around those who live outside their household.

Those who are not yet eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine, including children, should also continue to wear masks when they’re around others outside their immediate household, according to CDC guidance. Any child under 2 years old must not wear a face covering due to risk of suffocation.

Unvaccinated Delawareans ages 12 and older are urged to get vaccinated as soon as possible to protect themselves from infection and serious illness. You can find a vaccination site at this location:

When on site, we will still maintain our health safety checks including but not limited to: temperature readings/recordings; social distancing of at least 3 feet where possible with anyone not in your household; and frequent hand-washing and/or sanitizing. Instructors and counselors will monitor those students who may need to remove their masks as required when participating in a performance, skit, or exercise. Our guideline signage will remain posted in our wash facilities and throughout the center, and our facility will continue to be sanitized twice daily with the most effective COVID-19 virus deterrents and equipment available.

We appreciate everyone’s patience while we continue to navigate through COVID-19. While it does appear that we are making progress throughout our community and state, we will still continue to monitor Governor Carney’s updates as well as CDC guidelines and outline our polices and procedures accordingly.

Have a safe and enjoyable summer!
