COVID Guidelines for Loudoun Symphonic Winds

Requirements to Participate in Rehearsals

In order to participate in rehearsals and performance with Loudoun Symphonic Winds, band members will need to provide proof of being fully vaccinated for COVID plus a booster shot. We believe this is in the best interest of the ensemble in terms of continued participation and general safety.

We will approve the following exceptions for not having had the booster shot:

  • Band member provides a doctor's note stating that they cannot get the booster, either temporarily or permanently. If temporarily, the doctor needs to provide the date they are eligible to receive the shot. We don't need information on the underlying reasons.
  • Band member is not be able to get their booster shot before attending their first rehearsal. They are permitted to attend one rehearsal before receiving the shot.
