July 2022 Update: The Folk School will no longer require COVID-19 vaccinations for classes. This could change, and some classes may still require it if the instructor requests it. The following mask policy remains in effect, however. We appreciate your kind consideration as we do our best to keep our community members safe and healthy!
For indoor classes, The Folk School requires that students ages 5 and older show proof that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to participate.
Masks are also required for all individuals during all indoor classes and events anytime Fairbanks North Star Borough is in the State of Alaska DHSS Yellow/Medium Community Level or above. Masks must fit securely, and cover both nose and mouth. If we are in the green zone, masks will be optional indoors.
The following website https://experience.arcgis.com/experience/af2efc8bffbf4cdc83c2d1a134354074/ is used to determine DHSS COVID-19 Community Case Rates.
For outdoor classes, please check the class listing for COVID requirements. Many outdoor classes will not require proof of vaccination, but some longer classes may, according to instructor comfort level. Masks will be optional for most outdoor classes and events.

We appreciate your assistance in creating a safe environment for everyone who attends our classes and events.
