Music Together of Galloway Updated Health Policy 

At Music Together of Galloway, we are closely monitoring the situation regarding coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in our community. According to the Atlantic County Division of Public Health, at this time, there are no known cases of COVID-19 in Atlantic County. Until the situation is resolved, we will continue to defer to the CDC and other health professionals on how best to prevent the spread of infectious diseases.

In the meantime, we have revised our health policy using guidance from the CDC (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/downloads/stop-the-spread-of-germs.pdf) about best practices to prevent the spread of all germs and ensure your continued health and well-being. 

2020 Health Policy for Music Together of Galloway

We ask for your help in keeping all the members of our musical community healthy by following these protocols. Your vigilance and adherence to this health policy is extremely important. We reserve the right to send a family home from class if we feel these sickness protocols are not being followed.

Classroom Cleaning Protocols 

  • All instruments we use will be disinfected between classes and the end of the day with hospital-grade sanitizing disinfectant. 
  • Classroom surfaces will be cleaned and sanitized daily. 
  • Some instruments and props may be taken out of circulation.
  • Alcohol-based hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes will be available for use during class.

Family Health Protocols 

  • We ask that all adults and children wash their hands before and after class for at least 20 seconds. (Sing the “Hello Song” to all the members of your family: that'll be at least 20 seconds!) Please arrive a few minutes early to allow time for this.
  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow. (Practice this with our chant, "I'm freezing, I'm freezing . . .  sneezing . . . Achoo! Achoo!”) Afterwards, wash your hands or use the provided hand sanitizer or sanitizing wipes.  

Illness Policy

  • If you or your child is sick, please stay home until you are fully recovered. If you or your child has had a fever, you must be fever-free for at least 24 hours (without assistance of fever-reducing medication) before returning to class. 

Schedule a Make Up!

We have a generous makeup policy, so please keep that in mind. If circumstances warrant, make-up classes will be added at the end of the semester.
