Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and continuing increase in cases due to the omicron variant, the board has decided to require vaccination, as have many other bands. Here is our list of ways to reduce our risk while rehearsing indoors:
1. Vaccination is now required, including boosters when available.
2. Spread out as much as possible.
3. Wear a mask when not playing, or a mask that can be used while playing. Percussion can mask up the entire time.
4. Using a bell cover is highly recommended; they are not expensive and can be bought online.
5. If not using a bell cover, bring a rag or newspaper to put on the floor by your chair to pick up condensation from your horn.
6. If you feel at all ill, stay home.
7. Rehearsals will be shortened a bit - 7:15 to 8:30. Be prepared to play at 7:15.
