Health & Safety Guidelines  

Art Therapy Studio (ATS) has made health policies consistent with CDC guidelines for participating in our programs to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19. However, because COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is spread mainly from person-to-person contact, ATS cannot guarantee that its participants, volunteers, partners, or others in attendance will not become infected with COVID-19.  

We ask that anyone experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 to stay home and not come into our offices or attend our programs. If you come in and are discovered to have symptoms similar to COVID-19, you will be asked to leave. If you are a client-artist you will be asked to not return until you are: 1.) able to provide documentation of a negative COVID-19 test (regardless of vaccination status or if your symptoms have subsided) OR 2.) at least 2 weeks have passed since you first started experiencing symptoms or from when you were sent home. 

We work with a variety of individuals who are children or may be immunocompromised and want to keep COVID-19 (and other illnesses) controlled as best we can. Negative COVID-19 tests should be sent to Clinical Director Cheryl Pete at cheryl@arttherapystudio.org or mailed to us at Art Therapy Studio, Attn: Cheryl Pete, 12200 Fairhill Road, Cleveland, OH 44120 for approval before being permitted to return to the Studio prior to the 2-week quarantine period.
