Cape Cod Institute COVID-19 Procedures
Please check back in on this page for updates as our procedures continue to evolve and change.
MAK Continuing Education, LLC does not currently require proof of vaccination or a negative test prior to attendance.
For your personal safety and that of our community, we encourage all participants to monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 and other illnesses before your visit. If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 before arrival, we ask you to take a home test. If you test positive before your arrival, contact our administration team, who will work with you to switch you to the live-online version of the original course (if available) or help you switch to a later course once you have recovered.
Rapid tests will be available onsite for anyone experiencing symptoms.
Rooms are equipped with air purifiers, and windows remain open to increase ventilation.
Masks will be available to participants on-site.
Masks are not required. While optional, we still recommend wearing a high-quality mask in the classroom, especially if you're at high risk of getting very sick. In line with CDC guidelines, we also ask anyone experiencing symptoms or who has been in close contact with someone with COVID-19 to self-test before attending their in-person course.
Cleaning & Sanitization Practices: All classrooms, seats, tables, and common spaces will be cleaned daily by Institute staff to ensure the safest environment possible. Personal cleaning supplies (hand sanitizer, wipes, and paper towels) will be available to participants who wish to access them at any time.
Live-Online Course Offering:
To increase accessibility, most of our courses will be offered live-online and in-person. These courses will take place simultaneously with live-online colleagues joining in-person participants and faculty via Zoom Meetings. All of these courses will be recorded. By joining in-person or live-online, you acknowledge that you agree to live taping. Your likeness will not be used for any purposes without informed consent.
COVID-19 Assumption of Risk:
COVID-19 is highly contagious and has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. People can be infected and show no symptoms and, therefore, spread the disease. COVID-19 can cause serious and potentially life-threatening illness. The Cape Cod Institute cannot prevent you (or your family members) from becoming exposed to, contracting, or spreading COVID-19 while utilizing the Institute’s services or premises. Therefore, if you choose to use the Institute’s services, you understand, acknowledge, and accept the risks you may expose yourself to and/or increase your risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19.
Up until two weeks before your course start date: For cancellations (in-person or live-online courses), you will receive a refund less a $50 cancellation fee.
Between 14 days and 1 day: If you give notice between fourteen and one day(s) before your course start date, a credit for a 2024 or 2025 Cape Cod Institute program is available. Credit may be applied to any 2023 or 2024 Cape Cod Institute course. There will be no price reduction for switching to a live-online course within two weeks of the course start date.
Once your course begins: No credit or refund is available if you cancel on the arrival day, if you do not show up, or if you leave an event early for any reason. No refund will be available if you attend a program and are dissatisfied with its presentation or content. If you need to leave for any reason, no partial credit can be given. You can notify our staff of your cancellation at email@example.com.
MAK Continuing Education LLC, Cape Cod Institute, and its cosponsors are not responsible for any statements, acts, material, or omissions by faculty or participants. Participants may address any comment or complaint regarding course content, speakers, facilities, nonreceipt of certificates, refund requests, and other miscellaneous occurrences at any time to the director, program director, Onsite manager, or administrator in person, by phone, or by email. The Director is informed, included, and involved in the resolution of every grievance that may occur. If preferred, grievances can also be brought forward to the Institute’s Auxiliary Social worker, Alexandra Marquez, LCSW, or Auxiliary Psychologist, Lara Singer, PsyD (please see contact information below). Grievances relating to an instructor, the content presented or the type of presentation will be passed to the instructor assuring the confidentiality of the aggrieved individual. Grievances relating to an offering will be referred to the administrator who will allow the aggrieved individual to take a different course or provide a full refund or take other action that satisfies the aggrieved party. If the aggrieved party remains aggrieved then the issue will go to arbitration. The registrant agrees that any dispute that remains unresolved by above shall be resolved by arbitration in the State of Connecticut pursuant to the rules of the American Arbitration Association. Those not pleased with the resolution provided by MAK Continuing Education LLC, Cape Cod Institute may appeal to the approving entity or their jurisdictional board.
