With the state of Washington moving to Phase 2 of the covid-19 reopening guidelines, it appears that we can resume some semblance of normalcy. WOTFA districts can begin hosting meetings and jam sessions, albeit in a modified format.
Meetings are allowed by Phase 2 Weddings, Funerals, and
Events COVID-19 Requirements. Meeting locations, for most of the districts, will have an occupancy rating issued by the fire department or fire marshal. Check with your building owner or landlord to find out what the maximum occupancy rating is.
25% occupancy guideline, if your meeting location is rated for 100 people, then you will be able to hold your meeting with no more that 25 people in attendance. Most of our meetings are well below this number and most meeting venues allow for a greater occupancy rating. You can easily calculate the maximum number of people allowed, Building Occupancy Rating divided by 4. (BOR/4).
- Wear your masks, wash your hands, and practice social distancing, even if you have had the vaccine. The vaccine does not prevent you from spreading the virus to others.
- No food should be served or shared with other participants.
- Jam session chairs should be spaced 6 feet apart.
- Have fun and lets get WOTFA playing music again!
