This past week the Jazz Club Board of Directors met in special session and voted unanimously to go forward with our full season beginning in October. Four variables contributed to this decision:
...1. 90%+ of our typical audience is vaccinated
...2. Overwhelming % of new cases are unvaccinated
...3. Daily cases dropped by 32% over past 3 weeks
...4. We now have a legal process for controlling
.......admission to events.
The Covid-19 pandemic is not over and it still represents a serious threat to our community. This is particularly true for the unvaccinated and those with serious pre-existing health conditions. New variants are likely to continue to emerge which will have to be monitored closely.
With the identification of legal audience screening tools, the Board decided that it can produce reasonably safe events; however, each of us will have to decided for ourselves what our vulnerabilities are and what level of risk we are willing to take.
WE ARE NOT YET LIVING IN A POST COVID-19, RISK-FREE ENVIRONMENT.
