COMMUNITY HEALTH
& SAFETY PLAN

The health and safety of our students, choir members and staff remain at the forefront of services, and any updates or changes to our health and safety policies will be reflected with full transparency on this webpage and announced in our weekly newsletter.

 

Currently, private lessons, workshops and choir rehearsals are held in person for all students and choir members who are fully vaccinated (two weeks past the second dose). If you aren’t fully vaccinated yet, don’t fret! We still offer a virtual option via Zoom for all our services.

 

We are implementing the following health and safety measures for all private lessons and rehearsals held at our studio:

 

 

  • If you are visiting Chorus Studio for the first time, you are required to submit a screenshot or photo of your BC Vaccine Card via email for verification.

  • Masks are currently optional at choir rehearsals, workshops and private lessons. However, we may require masks whenever there is a surge or outbreak in COVID cases in the community, and we do encourage wearing masks indoors to help prevent and mitigate COVID infections.

  • You are encouraged to wash your hands or use hand sanitizer (we will have a spray bottle of hand sanitizer available) upon arrival at the rehearsal.

  • We will have air purifiers running during your lesson, workshop or choir rehearsal to ensure optimal air quality.

  • Sharing of sheet music, food or beverages is not recommended.

  • If you are feeling under the weather or are experiencing any symptoms of illness, you are not allowed to come to indoor rehearsals or private lessons - please notify your teacher and attend your lesson or rehearsal virtually.

  • High contact areas will be frequently sanitized, and high contact equipment such as microphones will be sanitized after every use.

  • Any student, choir member or staff member who does not follow the safety guidelines and protocols will be asked to leave the lesson or rehearsal immediately.

 

 

Please note that these policies are subject to change, and we are constantly looking to new data regarding the safety of singing indoors. We act in accordance with the guidelines provided by the BCCDC, and with the health and safety of our immunocompromised members in mind. 

 

Lastly, we would like to encourage you to do your part for the community and go get vaccinated (if you can)! From our community to yours, “when it’s your turn, go get it, please don’t wait.”
