The YSOECI board of directors has updated our mask policy, making masks optional at this time. Please see our specific policy:
As local schools, per state and CDC guidelines, have relaxed mask mandates, making them optional, YSOECI will follow suit and make masks optional at this time. Our policy going forward will be to reflect the CDC’s recommendations from week to week, and if community levels rise, masks may once again be required until such time as community levels are lower. Members are advised to track Delaware County’s community positivity levels and follow the recommendations as of the day of rehearsal or event. Those students coming from outside the county are asked to be aware of levels both in Delaware County and their home county, and if coming from an area registered as a hotspot, to observe those pertinent recommendations for the higher risk area when coming to YSOECI rehearsals and events. If the status of mask requirement is reinstated due to CDC recommendations, YSOECI will return to mask optional status as soon as is reasonably possible.
