COVID doesn't seem to want to go away. And, our first priority - as always - is to provide a safe, and relaxing environment for everyone who comes to our home. So, for the foreseeable future, we’re going to keep our vax / booster / mask policy in place.
The details are below - we're hopeful we will be able to relax these restrictions soon, but we'll just have to figure it out as we go, and we will always err on the side of caution. Keep an eye on this page for updates.
Concerts will be held in our living room, with reduced seating and extra space between reservation groups. Our ceiling fan will be going and we may crack a few windows to improve ventilation, so you might want to consider bringing a sweater.
To offset the reduced number of guests, we will continue asking each of us to contribute a little more to the artist. As always, 100% of all artist contributions go to the artists.
Only guests who have been fully COVID-vaccinated may attend in person. Our definition of “fully vaccinated” now includes a full initial dosage of Pfizer or Moderna (2 shots) or J&J (1 shot), plus a booster shot of any of these vaccines. If you are not fully vaccinated according to this definition, we will not confirm you to attend a show at our home. This rule applies to children attending an All Ages Welcome show, as well.
We’ll be asking to see your vaccination card when you reserve seats (we won’t keep a copy, but we will make a note that you’re vaccinated so we’ll only need to ask once). Thanks to all of you who have already happily provided copies of your vax cards! And if you’d like to save us some time, please make sure you send us your *latest* vax card showing the addition of your COVID booster shot.
We believe in masks & social distancing. So, at least for now, we’re going to require that everyone wear masks when not in their seats, even though we’re all vaccinated. We strongly urge you to wear N95, KN95 or surgical masks, and to wear them properly (covering both your your nose and mouth).
And we urge everyone to respect others' space; "zero contact" greetings are encouraged to avoid that awkward look if you try to hug someone who's just not ready.
The hall bathroom off our kitchen is available for your use. There will be sanitary wipes for your use. We ask all guests to wipe down the toilet, seat, sink, light switch and doorknob when you’re done.
If you’re not feeling well, or if you've been exposed to COVID in the past 7 days, please stay home. The health and safety of our guests, and our artists, is most important to us, so please consider this a public health request from your hosts.
If you attend a concert in person and either begin to experience COVID symptoms or test positive within 5 days, please let us know immediately so we can pass the word to others.
We don’t know what the future will bring, but we hope these extra steps will be temporary. And, of course, all of this is subject to public health conditions and guidelines as time goes on.
We’re always happy to hear your comments and feedback. We will, of course, keep you all posted as all of this continues to evolve.
