CCNC COVID PROTOCOL
Fall 2021

Newport County Youth Chorus

Outdoor classes 

When the weather is cooperating and it remains light, we will hold all NCYC classes and rehearsals outside (masks not required; though singers are welcome to wear them). 

 

Indoor classes

Masks will be required during indoor rehearsals, chairs will be spread out for distancing and windows will be opened (when possible). 

Pick-up procedures will be communicated with families after registration based on class location. 

 

General

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.

Aquidneck Singers

Tuesdays from 5:30 - 7:00 pm at Common Fence Point beginning September 14. 

 

The rehearsal location (indoors, outdoors) will be announced at the beginning of every week so that singers can plan accordingly (masks, layers, etc). 

 

General

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. 

 

Outdoor rehearsals 

When the weather is cooperating and it remains light, we will hold rehearsals outside in the CFP parking lot (no mask required, though participants are welcome to wear them). Participating virtually will likely not be possible. Virtual participants will be provided rehearsal tracks for at home practice. 

 

Indoor rehearsals

Masks will be required at indoor rehearsals, chairs will be spread out throughout the hall for distancing and windows will be opened. 

 

Virtual Participation

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.
