COVID-19 Guidelines for Rehearsals

We have produced this guide to help ensure safe and enjoyable rehearsals for everyone. These guidelines were last revised in August 2023.

Please get in touch if you have any questions or concerns not answered here.

Do not attend if you are unwell or likely to be infectious

  1. Do not attend if you are unwell or likely to be infectious

    If you are not well, or have symptoms of a respiratory infection such as COVID-19 that you would not normally have, please do not come to the rehearsal. 

    This helps protect people in our choir who are at higher risk of becoming seriously unwell from a respiratory infection or other illness. It’s better to practise at home for a week than risk exposing someone in the choir.

    This applies to all infectious illnesses, including ‘common’ ones such as colds or flu.
  1. We recommend taking a Lateral Flow Test to help you decide if you’re infectious

    We do not require people to have a negative LFT as a condition of entry.

    However, if Lateral Flow Tests are an affordable option for you, we recommend them as a good way of determining if you are likely to be infectious with COVID-19. 

    They are especially helpful if you’ve recently been at higher risk of infection, e.g. a close contact of someone with COVID-19, or have spent time in a crowded and enclosed space, etc.
  1. The rehearsal and breakout rooms will be ventilated
  1. Mask-wearing and social distancing are your choice
  1. Practise good hand hygiene

Please be your normal kind and considerate selves!
