6. Students on campus should not participate in activities like those listed below, because of their potential for spreading the virus through respiratory droplets:
- Playing wind instruments
- Indoor sports
School gyms, weight rooms, and indoor workout facilities are to remain closed for purposes of athletic or fitness activities to both students and the community. Outdoor sports are allowable only if they can be conducted in accordance with Department of State Health Services guidance.
This should mean no wind instruments period, inside a build OR out (the language is not specific to this). In fact, the language goes out the way to make the distinction between indoor and outdoor sports. Wouldn't the same distinction be made for choir and band as well?
I really think clarification needs to come from the top (UIL music office) on what is and isn't allowed. As always, we should plan for one thing, but have multiple back up plans for when things change.
