OVC COVID 19 rehearsal attendance procedures 24 February 2022
When formulating these procedures, we carefully considered:
We have continued to adopt wherever possible the three fundamental safety principals HANDS (hygiene) + FACE (face coverings) + SPACE (social distancing), plus the ventilation of the rehearsal room.
Whilst we can take sensible and precautionary measures to help reduce the risk of the COVID19 virus spreading during rehearsals we cannot fully eliminate all risk, and therefore each of you must consider the health risks to yourself and decide if attending indoor rehearsals is right for you. Some members may have underlying health concerns and therefore may be in a high-risk group and this should be taken into consideration, furthermore we would not recommend anyone who has not been fully vaccinated to attend rehearsals.
It is incumbent upon us all to help protect each other from the COVID19 virus as we re-join as a group to enjoy singing together, and we must all play our part by complying with the following procedures
Do NOT attend rehearsals if you or anyone in your household:
We must all play our part in keeping our members and professionals safe and well and you should only attend rehearsals if you are feeling well. You may wish to take precautionary lateral flow test before attending rehearsals.
Members Contact Details
If you have not already done so, please complete a new member’s registration form providing your contact telephone number and email address which we will use for COVID19 track and trace purposes. If after attending a rehearsal session you test positive for COVID19 you must immediately notify the Choir by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and providing the positive COVID19 test date.
The virus can be transmitted by touching parts of the body close to your airway (i.e., face), therefor please use the hand sanitising soap provided each time you enter/re-enter the rehearsal room.
You MUST wear a face mask during and when queuing for registration and when you are moving around the other arears of the main building. We would encourage you to always wear a face mask other than when seated.
Rehearsals – Social Distancing
As the virus is airborne, can accumulate in spaces where air is stationery or slow moving and can be transmitted more readily when persons are closer together, the following will apply
Please print out your own song sheets (which can be found on the OVC website -onevoicewatford.com).
Please bring your own refreshments and these will no longer be provided.
Please continue with online payments to minimise the handling of cash for both the individuals taking the register and treasurer who banks the cash each week. However, we do appreciate that not everyone has online banking so for those members please bring with you the exact money £4.00 as change will not be provided.
