Maintaining the health, safety, and well-being of our choristers, staff, family members, and other people in the United Choir School (UCS) community is our top priority. Based on guidance from the CDC and in consideration of the ever-evolving circumstances, we have developed the following set of policies and protocols, which will remain in effect through June 31, 2023 and will apply to all activities of the 2022-2023 season or until further notice:
1. Choristers will be masked while singing in indoor spaces, and masks should be N95, KN94/5 or 3-layer surgical masks (no cloth masks, please). This policy may be revisited throughout the year with updated guidance from our consulting physicians.
2. Choristers may not be required to wear masks during certain outdoor activities that do not involve singing, though they are, of course, always welcome to do so if they so desire.
3. Choristers with any cold or flu-like symptoms are asked to stay home from rehearsals/performances and to take a covid test (PCR or antigen) before returning to choir.
4. UCS reserves the right to update and/or alter these protocols at any time due to changing circumstances, new information, regulations or recommendations from relevant authorities or for any other reason at the sole discretion of UCS staff. Thank you in advance for doing all that you can to keep all members of our UGC family safe and singing!!!
