Show Prep Classes

Face coverings, especially face masks, are required for everyone in the building.  The latest info from the CDC states that face masks are more effective than face shields at containing and reducing the spread of respiratory particles in the air.  See the CDC site for complete information.  Everyone must sign the COVID-19 waiver.

What we know:

  • The virus is very contagious

  • The virus spreads through the air

  • Many infected people show no symptoms and can spread the virus

  • An infected person wearing a mask or shield is less likely to infect others

  • Physical distance provides additional safety

The Board of Directors of GKCDTC thanks you for your cooperation in caring about the health and safety of everyone.
