COVID-19 Policy

We are dedicated to keeping up with the latest info on COVID-19 to inform the policies we use to keep each other safe. This means they may differ from local mandates. Below is our policy for in-person workshops, events and other gatherings hosted at our space at 144 Montague.

Effective May 15th, 2023, all attendees are strongly encouraged to wear masks. Please stay home if you are experiencing symptoms, have a positive COVID test or someone close to you has recently tested positive. We are a multi-generational community and hope you will continue to take actions to keep yourself and others around you safe.

Workshop instructors or event hosts may choose to enforce a more stringent policy at their own discretion. Additionally, workshop participants may be required to wear masks as an accessibility accommodation for other participants or the instructor.

While we do our best, Brooklyn Poets cannot guarantee zero risk. A risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in all public settings. By entering the building, students, teachers and other attendees accept the risk of exposure and knowingly waive and release Brooklyn Poets from any liability related to COVID-19.
