To strike an appropriate balance between safety and functionality, NSYWE will continue to have the following COVID protocols in place:
If you have symptoms, do not come to rehearsal. You may take a rapid test before rehearsal just to be sure.
Vaccination is strongly recommended.
Masks will be mandatory in the building; masks may be removed while playing. You may wear a playing mask if you wish. We will discuss this during the first rehearsal weekend.
- Percussionists and Committee members will always wear a mask.
- Have a playing mask on hand if needed sometime this season.
You may use a bell cover if you wish. Have a bell cover on hand if needed sometime this season. We will discuss this during the first rehearsal weekend.
Puppy pads will be used. NSYWE will make them available for those who need them.
We will try to have a fresh air supply and to distance the seating as much as possible.
Hands should be sanitized or washed frequently. This is especially important right after playing and before heading to the snack table.
Snacks: Individual packaged snacks will be provided this season.
Breaks and Lunch: Socialize outdoors whenever possible.
We will continue to monitor public health advisories and remain flexible throughout the season to have a safe and healthy environment.
Thank you for your cooperation!
