We are conscious of the need for care and vigilance in keeping everyone safe and well with regards to Covid. There may be times when we will have no choice but to sit closer than 1metre from each other so I’m writing this document in a spirit of ‘let’s work hard and take personal responsibility to keep our whole community safe’. If we’re careful before we arrive then we can all feel more relaxed while we’re at a workshop.
Before you arrive
- Avoid crowded places in the run up to the workshop
- Take a lateral flow test 3 days before and again on the day of the workshop or event.
- Take responsibility for deciding if your actions are safe. If you have inadvertently found yourself in a risky situation in the run up to the event, stay away if attending would seem to be putting others at risk.
- Don’t attend if you are at all unwell or off colour or with any symptoms of illness. Your workshop fees will be returned.
During the workshop or event
- The air quality in the singing room will be monitored with a carbon dioxide meter and we’ll aim to keep the co2 to the safe level of below 800ppm.
- To allow a flow of air through the room we’ll have doors and windows open where possible. Please come prepared by bringing layers of clothing in case it’s chilly.
- Singers are welcome to wear a mask during workshops. There’s lots of useful information here: : https://makermask.org/constructing-masks-for-singers/
- Respect others need for distancing be mindful of hand hygiene.
- Don’t go to busy public spaces (e.g. the pub or supermarket) during residential events.
- Wherever it’s possible there will be a one-way system in and out of the singing room and at coffee breaks.
- Eat outside whenever possible.
