Covid-19 Pandemic Update -QBITTI HAS REOPENED!
The NYS Pause executive order entered into phase 4 on 7/19/2020 which allowed adult vocational schools to reopen for in-house training at 50% of capacity as long as the school meets all of the published CDC rules and regulations. During our downtime we modified our school, trained our staff, and instituted all of the guidelines as set forth by the CDC. As a result we are now able to reopen our school for in-house training on 7/26/2020.
Rest assured that at QBITTI, the safety of our students, staff and visitors has always been first and foremost in our minds. Though we are reopening our doors, students, staff and visitors are required to adhere to all of the NYS guidelines regarding social distancing, the wearing of face masks and the use of best practices with regard to personal protection. In addition we will be providing additonal training and guidance to our staff and students regarding new procedures created in an effort to fight this pandemic.
