COVID GUIDELINES

Although the Government Restrictions for COVID 19 drop on 19th July – we are still implementing these measures to ensure we have a safe environment for singing:

1)  We will remain as contactless as possible – this means we will continue with online booking and payments and we will still ask you to download your own song sheets. This way we can avoid unnecessary contact to prevent the spread. It also allows us to continue with track and trace so if we do have any alerts we can notify you asap.

2)  We will still remain 1m apart social distancing when singing so there is plenty of room at rehearsals and we are not too close but close enough to hear each other.

3)  We will keep all the doors and windows open at our rehearsal venues to allow for maximum ventilation – so please bring an extra layer incase it gets chilly towards the end of the evening.

4)  We will continue not to have a break in rehearsal to avoid mingling during rehearsals. We kindly ask that you chat to each other when rehearsal has finished outside in the open space. Rehearsals are 7:30pm to 9pm.

5)  Everything else is optional and down to you. If you want to wear a mask then please do, if you want to social distance with a larger space then please do… just do what feels right for you.

6)  We will remain online for the Summer so if you don’t feel ready to return yet then you don’t have to miss anything. Join Gemma & Howard every Tuesday on Zoom where we will be doing the same songs that everyone else is doing at live rehearsals.

7)  Please do not come to rehearsals if you are feeling unwell or have any symptoms or been in contact with someone who has Covid-19.
