COVID-19 INFO

The health and safety of our students, choir members and staff remain at the forefront of our transition plans, and any updates or changes to our services 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.

 

Under the current BC mask mandate, we are requiring all choir members and workshop participants to be masked while singing at the studio. For private lessons, where it is possible to sing while socially distanced, masks are optional. This mask policy will be revisited once the mask mandate is lifted.

 

In addition to the above policy, we will be implementing the following 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.

  • You are required 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 permitted.

  • 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 will reevaluate our policies after the fall term and provide updates when available. 

 

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.”
