Covid-19 Policies and Procedures – update July 2021

Update on COVID procedures

As you know, all of the legally binding restrictions on our rehearsals and events have been withdrawn. However, we must exercise caution in view of the rapidly rising number of COVID cases, particularly in our region. The Trustees believe that abandoning our precautions now would leave many members feeling unable to attend our events. The Cobweb core ethos is inclusivity, and we are proud of the spirit of community and togetherness that pervades all we do.

So, for the time being, most of our current precautions will remain in place. Some specific processes and measures may be modified slightly at the discretion of event organising teams, but always erring on the side of caution. Full details are below. Please read this carefully, and we hope you will continue to enjoy playing together while feeling safe.
