CCNC COVID PROTOCOL
Newport County Youth Chorus
In warmer months, we will hold NCYC classes and rehearsals outside (masks not required).
Masks are optional during indoor rehearsals when distancing is an option. (Note: Prep Chorus at Calvary does not allow for distancing; masks are highly encouraged.)
All classes at Calvary: masks are required indoors in shared spaces (entrance/exit, hallways, restrooms) so singers must continue to bring a mask.
If your child is under the weather (fever, cough, sore throat, stomach bug), please do not bring them to rehearsal. Notify Elizabeth ASAP if they cannot attend.
If your child tests positive for COVID or has been exposed to someone who tests positive, please notify Elizabeth within 24 hours.
All singers who participate in the Aquidneck Singers in person must be fully vaccinated. Proof of vaccination will be required prior to the first session.
If you are under the weather, please do not come to rehearsal. Notify Elizabeth ASAP if you cannot attend or plan to attend virtually (if available).
If you test positive for COVID or have been exposed to someone who tests positive, please notify Elizabeth within 24 hours.
In warmer months, some rehearsals may take place outside in the CFP parking lot. Participating virtually will not be possible. Virtual participants will be provided rehearsal tracks for at home practice.
Masks are encouraged when singing indoors, chairs will be spread out throughout the hall for distancing and windows will be opened.
Those who are not fully vaccinated people or those who are not comfortable with indoor singing have the option to participate virtually through live streaming. Live streaming allows participants to view and hear Aquidneck Singers rehearsals in real time through your computer. Virtual participants will be able to see both the conductor/accompanist as well as the in-person group. The sound system is excellent and clear and includes multiple microphones throughout the room. While this method is not interactive, those participating virtually will enjoy a high quality sound and viewing experience. Music will be sent to virtual participants so you can sing and follow along at home.
