COVID-19 Information

We care deeply about the health and well-being of our guests, our staff and our community.  While we continue to fully operate, we are doing things a little differently during the COVID-19 pandemic and have implemented the following policies and practices to help keep everyone safe.  We appreciate your patience, understanding and continued support as we navigate and adapt to the rapidly changing environment.

Classes and Events Are Now Available In-Person, Online and Hybrid Room/Zoom Format

We continue to host both in-person and online Private Events and Public Classes.  Most classes and events are being offered in our new Hybrid Format!  Each class or event registration page will indicate the formats available on the registration page.  Learn how our How Our Hybrid Classes and Events Work  

Masking and Vaccination Required for In-Person Visits

The County of San Mateo issued a mask mandate in all public indoor settings regardless of vaccination status on Aug 2, 2021 that remains in place today. Read the order.  As a result, all guests are required to wear masks when not actively eating or drinking in our facility.

Additionally, due to the current surge of cases in our area, guests attending in-person classes or events must be fully vaccinated.  Proof of vaccination with ID will be required at checkin.  Prior to February 1, 2022, fully vaccinated means having 1 shot of Johnson & Johnson or 2 shots of Pfizer or Moderna.  Beginning February 1, 2022, fully vaccinated means having also received 1 booster shot when eligible.  

Participate Online or Reschedule If You’re Unvaccinated, Sick or Exposed

We are thrilled to welcome those who do not meet the vaccination requirements listed above in our online classes.  

We ask that in-person attendees who are not feeling well, have COVID-19 symptoms, or have been exposed to someone known to have COVID-19 in the prior 10 days, please:

All rescheduling and distance learning options will be made available to you, so that you can continue your studies when you are ready.

Rescheduling Policy

If you are unable to join in person, you will be able to join most classes and events as a Zoomer.  Most class recordings will be available should you need to miss class altogether and may be requested by contacting help@sfwineschool.com.
