PYC COVID Protocols
We can’t wait to welcome all singers back to PYC September 12!
For the safety of all singers and our community the following safety protocols will be followed.
All PYC staff, artistic team, volunteers, and eligible students (age 12 and above) are required to be fully vaccinated with the Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccines to attend rehearsals. Singers who are in the process of being vaccinated and have received at least one dose of the vaccine, may also start rehearsing.
Please provide proof of full vaccination or proof of your first vaccination to PYC by Wednesday, September 1st in order to attend the first rehearsal on September 12th. (Sept 11th HS day retreat)
Proof of vaccination may be a photo of your vaccination card or documentation from your doctor. You can send this electronically to email@example.com, mail a copy to the PYC 620 SW Main St. Suite 203, Port. OR 97205 or upload at using this link - Vaccine Verification Form. When your second vaccination is complete, please send proof of full vaccination.
Students aged 11 and below are strongly encouraged to get fully vaccinated as soon as it is available and send a copy of proof of vaccination to PYC.
Vaccination exceptions exist for medical reasons. Please contact Ruth Finn at firstname.lastname@example.org with your request for exemption.
Masks and Social Distancing
Following the state mandate 8/11/21 masks will need to be worn for all indoor activities even if you are vaccinated.
Rehearsals inside and outside will be masked for the immediate future.
Please note that many of our wonderful high school singers sang together this summer masked with great success! (and had a wonderful time!)
We have found Starks triple filter masks easy to sing in.
When students sign into rehearsal each week, they will also note/acknowledge that that they are not experiencing COVID symptoms (a list of symptoms will be visible for students to review).
PYC will ensure surfaces are cleaned per CDC/EPA COVID guidelines and will have hand sanitizer available.
Our younger (unvaccinated) choirs will begin rehearsals distanced outside in the beautiful Trinity Courtyard during these opening beautiful months.
Our older (vaccinated) choirs may also rehearse inside (distanced) and out.
Once weather changes we will rehearse inside, distanced, masked, and with windows open.
We are confident that together we can create a safe and wonderful singing environment for all. Thank you for doing your part! We love to hear from families please contact email@example.com or call 503 780-1675!
