Preliminary studies of aerosol dispersal in wind instruments suggest social distancing of 6 feet (trombones should allow 9 feet in front of them).

 

Bell covers are highly recommended as "masks" for the instruments. Bell covers can be made of multi-layered high denier nylon material and provide a barrier for aerosols.

All students that play a brass instrument, should find something that can be used as a bell cover for practice this week July 22. Hosiery would work, or a fabric bookcover, etc. We will have to get creative for the Sousaphones for now. 

For woodwinds, we are taking the following precautions: 

Flutes/Piccolos: because of the horizontal "spray" of your breath, we moved your spacing to 15 feet last sectional. Some face shields will work. We are looking at several other ideas as well.

Clarinets/Saxophones: Your dispersal isn't just at the bell, but throughout the length of your instrument. It is suggested that you play your instrument "In a bag" A cloth covering would be preferred, but a plastic bag could be disposed of each time.
