Keizer Community Band DELAYED
The Keizer Community Band Board and I have made a decision that this is not a safe time to restart the Keizer Community Band. We are seeing high numbers of Covid cases in Salem and Marion County (about 185-300 per day). The State Fair and Labor Day weekend will probably generate more cases. Salem Hospital is full. We are currently in an indoor mask mandate. That means playing with a mask, bell covers and face shields. Students start at McNary the day after Labor Day. There probably will be recurrent policy changes once school starts.
We have made the decision to keep Band members, their families and members of the Community safe.We will continue to follow Salem/Keizer and State guidelines to determine when we can safely return to band practice.
Don’t forget that your instrument is your friend and likes your attention.
Looking forward to seeing you again soon.
