Because we are utilizing ACT facilities we are following ACT’s onsite COVID guidelines. They can be found on the ACT website. In addition we closely follow school, CDC, and state recommendations. With the indoor mask mandate ending, masks are now optional except for music rehearsal that requires singing or wind instruments.  We ask those with any symptoms to stay at home, and those who have experienced direct exposure to stay home until they receive a negative test.

As the school year approaches, many of the above policies may be revised.
