To protect health of its musicians, the Chippewa Valley Symphony Orchestra (“CVSO”) board of directors has developed the following COVID-19 safety guidelines, which will remain in effect at least through the 2022-23 season:
- Musicians must be fully vaccinated. “Fully vaccinated” is defined as receiving the final dose of a COVID-19 vaccine at least two weeks before the musician’s first rehearsal with CVSO. This applies to musicians whether or not they have been infected with COVID-19 in the past.
- Musicians must provide proof of vaccination. The original vaccine card or a digital image of the vaccine card are acceptable forms of proof.
- Rehearsal spaces will follow best practices. The safety protocols of venues where rehearsals and performances are held will govern CVSO musicians. Musicians are expected to follow guidelines pertaining to mask wearing, musician spacing, break time for air exchange, and any other safety protocols in place at that venue.
- If a musician tests positive for COVID-19 and believes their case may have been active while participating with CVSO, we ask that the musician notify CVSO’s personnel manager or executive director so that CVSO can notify other musicians as needed, without revealing the identity of the musician who tested positive.
- Musicians should stay home if they are feeling sick.
The COVID-19 pandemic and our understanding of the COVID-19 virus has and will change over time. These guidelines are subject to change without notice.
CVSO performs at Pablo Center at the Confluence, and patrons are expected to follow safety protocols in place at that venue at the time of their attendance. For the most up-to-date safety guidelines, see the Pablo’s Center’s website.
Thank you to our musicians and patrons for their patience and understanding as CVSO does our best to provide “music you love by people you know” in a safe environment.
