Re: Serious question about performances in the pandemic
During the summer, UIL, TEA made recommendations. Many of us followed those recommendations. Some didn't. There were discussions on this board regarding both reactions, compliance and disregard. My position back then and today is that it is our duty to model compliance regardless of our opinion. We did perform in the gymnasium. We were seated 6 ft side to side and alternating positions row to row, which made the direct line 12 feet front to back. We only used one band and one audience, to allow for disinfecting/cleaning before and after. I can say that we have not had band students contracting COVID. Our Football team was quarantined, our basketball team has been quarantined, even cheerleaders, volleyball, not band. Follow protocol, be safe. Take care of your students.
