WVC Covid Guidelines

Winter/Spring 2022

January 13, 2022

Regarding COVID measures at rehearsals: We will not ask for vaccination ID, but will ask if you are fully vaccinated and know you will answer honestly for all our safety. We will follow the protocol guidelines set by the CDC, State, County and the Warwick Reformed Church.

We still request that you wear a mask at all times. Please sit six feet from the singers on each side of you, and leave an empty pew between your row and the row in front of / behind you. If our conductor, Dennis English, needs to move you for acoustic or safety reasons, please move quickly and quietly so we don’t lose too many rehearsal minutes. If there is a valid medical reason why you can’t be vaccinated or can’t wear a mask, please let me know. We will have extra masks available for those who need them.

Our bylaws specify that singers may not miss more than three rehearsals per season without a valid excuse, but this season is certainly not an ordinary one. While we still want to be rigorous about learning your music, physically attending rehearsal may sometimes pose a risk to you or others, so we will allow you to use your own judgment as to what’s safe and responsible. If you feel unwell or notice symptoms that might be COVID, please stay home from rehearsal that evening. As we get the season going, we will have SATB rehearsal tracks available online and on CD, so you can practice at home.
