COVID

Last Updated on September 13, 2021 by Curt Cassingham

Due to ongoing COVID-19 issues, East County Community Orchestra’s rehearsal and performance schedules have been on hold since the beginning of the pandemic.  The Board meets regularly to discuss the current affairs of COVID-19 restrictions.  The resumption of rehearsals and performances for the 2021-2022 season is currently pending.  Our first appearance this season will be a joint concert with our sister organization, the Portland Metro Concert Band, tentatively scheduled for Sunday December 5, 2021.

We track the status of the pandemic via the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) news releases, and encourage everyone to follow prudent good health practices. Our priority is the continued health of our members and audiences. We are considering all options available to inform our members and audiences in time to act and reduce confusion. We encourage you to stay informed individually, and a good link for the OHA is https://www.oregon.gov/oha/pages/index.aspx.  OHA continues to recommend all people in Oregon take everyday precautions to prevent the spread of many respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19 and other influenzas.

Once rehearsals begin, we will honor any of our members’ decisions to refrain from rehearsals or performances, as your health comes first in our minds. Even after we are able to start rehearsals again, if our venue providers close their facilities, for rehearsals or performances, we will honor those closures. We will notify everyone via our web, and media channels as soon as that decision is announced.

Thank you for your understanding and support.
