COVID MITIGATION PLAN 2021

The Management Committee recommends resuming rehearsals for fully vaccinated members.

 

Because of the risk factors involved it's necessary to put very stringent precautions in place. Importantly, these include wearing masks, double-vaccinated singers only, spacing and no mingling and no cuppas.  We suggest that members catch-up outdoors before or after the rehearsals. 

 

The full list of safety measures are:

  • The venue be spacious and well-ventilated (ie not recirculated air; avoid air streams).

  • Participants must show documentation of double vaccination (John Mealings to sight document).

  • Do not attend if high risk (symptoms, awaiting test result, close contact, travelled to a restricted area (such as “Greater Sydney” is currently) in the previous 14 days).

  • Hand hygiene on entry.

  • QR Code on entry (for NSW Health tracing).

  • OMVC will maintain a separate register of attendance (for immediate response if needed).

  • IN-OUT with no mingling.

  • Wear masks at all times, incl when humming and singing.

  • Bring own music, pencils etc.

  • Singers remain seated with spacing at 1 per 4sq metres.

  • Accompanist and Conductor facing but 5 metres from singers.

  • Rehearsal for the whole choir for 1-hour initially.

  • All participants commit to immediate notifying OMVC if he/she or a family member is suspected to be infected with Covid or tests Covid-positive.

  • Rehearsals will be suspended if a rehearsing member is infected or if community spread increases in Orange and district.
