The PEI Government strongly recommends that masks continue to be worn in indoor settings. Here at Knit Pickers PEI, we want to ensure the safety of all of our visitors. I will continue to wear a mask whenever there is a guest in the studio. If you plan to attend a workshop, our policy is that masks will be required. The studio is not a large space and physical distancing is not always possible. As most workshops last at least a couple of hours - and that time will very likely be spent in close proximity to others - we feel that this policy is in everyone's best interest. We want to ensure that all of our guests feel comfortable and safe - including those who may be immunocompromised or have family/friends who are immunocompromised, or who are unable to be vaccinated or have children/family who are unvaccinated, or who for whatever personal reasons need to take extra precautions. I know I do not feel imposed upon when taking such a small step to help my neighbours, friends and guests - and I'm sure you feel the same way.
