Covid Safety Policy for In-Person Classes & Events
FilmNorth is following CDC’s current COVID-19 guidance for Ramsey County:

  • Masks are recommended for those who are unvaccinated, immunocompromised, or at high-risk for complications associated with COVID-19.
  • People may choose to mask at any time.
  • People with any COVID-19 symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should stay home.
