Our COVID-19 Mitigation Plan
Nothing can prevent the spreading or catching of a virus,
but we will minimize the risk as much as possible through the things we do. Toward that end, we have implemented several suggestions and alternative practices from The Event Safety Alliance Reopening Guide.
Other than emphasizing the importance of following authoritative scientific advice from organizations such as the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization, the Reopening Guide offers suggestions and alternative practices for consideration rather than claiming that any one practice is better than all others.
Event Safety Alliance Vice President Steven A. Adelman, the head of Adelman Law Group, PLLC and editor of the Reopening Guide, explains how the document applies the legal duty of care. “As a matter of common law, everyone has a duty to behave reasonably under their own circumstances. Consequently, there is no such thing as ‘best’ practices. There are only practices that are reasonable for this venue, this event, this crowd, this time and place, during this pandemic. Because few operational bright lines would make sense, The Event Safety Alliance Reopening Guide is designed to help event professionals think through their own circumstances. In the order than one plans an event, the Reopening Guide looks closely at the health and safety risks involved in reopening public spaces, then proposes risk mitigation measures that are likely to be reasonable under the circumstances of the smaller events and venues that will reopen first.”
In live performance, Debra uses a performs with a
Win-D-Fender device attached to her flute.
This device essentially acts as a mask, keeping Deb’s breath ‘to herself’ while still allowing for an (mostly!) unchanged sound.
Paul Bowman performs wearing a facial mask.
Performance venues are encouraged to provide seating that accommodates social distancing
in accordance with local recommendations.
Whenever possible, windows are kept open in the performance venue.
We provide complimentary Duo Sequenza masks to our event attendees.
These mitigation measures will remain in effect as long as is necessary, but hopefully not permanently.
Please understand that your participation and attendance at our events is your choice; the risk is yours,
and not the responsibility of the artists nor the event venue and sponsors.
