At Lifetouch, we have found a special purpose in capturing and preserving life-long memories through photography. It's an honor to partner with preschools across the country, each day, to support energetic, influential learning environments. With the many changes in the world this year, now more than ever, we are reminded of the importance of capturing special moments and sharing photography with friends and family. This Fall, Lifetouch is taking extra steps to keep your preschool community safe while capturing the time-honored tradition of preschool photography. Lifetouch is leading the photography industry in providing comprehensive safety protocols. These protocols follow the guidelines and recommendations of the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards related to COVID-19. Our new safety protocols include: Safety Training Lifetouch employees are required to complete enhanced safety and cleaning protocol training. Social Distancing Employees will follow new posing and social distancing requirements to ensure a safe and comfortable Picture Day. Enhanced Cleaning Photographers will have a sanitization kit to clean camera stations and equipment. Face Masks Our team will follow the Center's policy or CDC guidelines regarding masks – whichever is more stringent. If a Center allows, masks are optional for fully vaccinated photographers, volunteers and students. Even fully vaccinated photographers will always have a mask available to wear if it's requested for a specific class or student. Customized Plan Most importantly, we'll work with you to establish a plan that fits your needs. *Photography safety protocols may change based on new revised recommendations from local and national government agencies. While photography sessions may look different this year, as a trusted partner, our goal remains the same; to ensure you receive this essential photography service and families can continue to capture life's memories.
