Penrose Academy’s Heightened COVID-19 Safety Measures

Over the last few months, COVID-19 has made our way of living something we almost don’t recognize anymore. Everyone around the world has had to change their daily lives to adjust to the “new normal.”

At Penrose Academy, there has been a lot of planning and preparation for our reopening after our state mandated closure / stay at home order expired. Using the CDC’s guidance and following Arizona Department of Health Services and the Governor’s recommendations, we have been hard at work to make sure our students, staff, and faculty feel safe and protected while on campus.

Our first priority in reopening was, and still is, helping to ensure the safety of our Penrose community. We started by reviewing and evaluating our pre-existing health and safety policies and protocols, then enhanced them to provide the safest possible environment for our students, staff and faculty.

One way we have done that is by creatively mapping out our hybrid curricula for a combination of online and on campus hours, alleviating density and accommodating social distancing. This step means less people on campus during the week, while still providing students the hands-on education that they need to be successful in the industry.

Here are some other enhanced safety measures we have implemented:

• Requiring masks on campus
• Following 6’ social distancing guidelines
• Restricting visitors & guests
• Installing sensor lights in all the restrooms
• Installing touchless faucets
• Implementing strict guest protocols
• Adding directional pathways for entering/exiting
   • Installing touchless faucets
   • Purchasing acrylic dividers for the salon floor
   • Purchasing acrylic shields for manicures
   • Adding extensive signage throughout campus
   • Adding an additional time clock
• Random temperature checks

We’re also providing additional personal protective gear for students including:

• Face masks (required at all times)
• Disposable capes
• Face shields

We will continue to enhance and evolve our on-campus safety measures as needed, and we will move forward making smart choices for our Penrose community every day.
