Due to the lifting of mandates, masks are optional at CharacterWorks. We encourage each family to make a decision regarding their student wearing a mask after considering the current CDC recommendations. Families will be updated with any changes when applicable.

Facilities & Venues

CharacterWorks is subject to the policies of the facilities that are rented for classes, rehearsals and shows, and may have to adjust the policies from facility to facility. Class, show, and camp locations are subject to change based on changes in the policies of our facility and venue partners. At the Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen, masks are optional in the theater, but are required in the theater lobby and common spaces by the facility.

Health Screening

Parents are asked to do a health screening each day before sending their student(s) to class, rehearsal, or camp. Please take your child’s temperature and monitor symptoms before coming to a CharacterWorks function. A student should not come to CharacterWorks if:
  • He or she has one primary symptom: fever, persistent cough, shortness of breath, vomiting, etc.
  • He or she has two or more secondary symptoms that are new or worsening: chills, muscle pain, fatigue, headache, runny nose and/or congestion (not associated with known allergies), sore throat, diarrhea, nausea, and loss of taste or smell.
  • He or she has had close contact (within 6-feet of a person for a cumulative 15 minutes over 24 hours) with someone who is presumed positive, even if testing has not been performed or testing results are pending. It is safest to stay at home if you have been in close contact of a “presumed positive” case.
Remember when in doubt, play it safe and stay home!
