Please understand it takes months of planning for each session OLLI-UA offers. With so much uncertainty, we are taking a cautious approach to ensure a safe and quality member experience. OLLI-UA is introducing expanded in-person classes at our Central Tucson and Green Valley campus locations with the intent of gradually returning to full in-person offerings across OLLI. This gives members, study group leaders, and leadership a way to test the waters with willing participants while maintaining a broad array of programming online.
For long-term members, the feeling of the campus environment will not be the same. In-person programming is purposely being limited in the number of offerings. Only members officially registered for classes will be able to attend. No drop-ins allowed. Please keep in mind there are still robust online offerings for all members as an alternative.
OLLI-UA 501(c)(3) is taking steps to help ensure the health and well-being of our members, study group leaders, and staff, but please know members need to decide for themselves if they are comfortable attending in-person activities and assume any personal risk involved. We also ask you to think of our collective membership and act in the best interest of all participants when deciding to attend in-person activities.?OLLI-UA continues to provide robust online offerings for those who cannot meet the requirements for in-person activities.
To protect our highly vulnerable learning community, the Board of Directors of OLLI-UA 501(c)(3) is now requiring members be fully vaccinated per CDC guidelines to attend in-person activities at our campus locations. We are also requiring masks to be worn in our facilities and classrooms. You may be required to present proof of vaccination and are strongly encouraged to follow the latest CDC recommendations for COVID-19 including booster shots.
OLLI-UA safety protocols may include?social distancing,?classroom capacity reductions, improved ventilation: MERV 11 (Green Valley) MERV 13 (Tucson) HVAC filters,?and anti-viral approved cleaning. Disinfecting wipes and hand sanitizer dispensers will be available.
Do not attend in-person classes if you are not feeling well or have tested positive for Covid-19.??Those who are immuno-compromised or are part of a household with?immuno-compromised individuals?should take great precautions, consult their medical providers, and are encouraged to utilize our online offerings to remain safe.
