COVID Policy

Our COVID policies as of August 21, 2023:

  • Masks will be optional.  Anyone who wishes to wear a mask is encouraged to do so.

  • We will expand the distance between seats to use more of the space in Parker Hall.  We may need to experiment with different arrangements to find out what works best.

  • Members with minor symptoms* or who are a known close contact** to a COVID case may attend Wednesday rehearsals as long as they have a negative COVID test, wear a mask, and sit away from the group.

  • Singers with minor symptoms who have tested negative for COVID can stand among the group and sing masked in dress rehearsals and concerts.

  • We will not have a COVID committee at this time.

  • Refreshments will be available during rehearsal breaks.


*   "Minor symptoms” means no fever, no coughing, and no sneezing that’s unrelated to an allergy or other chronic condition.
**  A close contact is someone who was less than 6 feet away from an infected person for a total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period.


The Board will do ongoing monitoring of Massachusetts wastewater trends and hospitalization data and will update guidance accordingly.  We will reevaluate policies at least every three months.
