As infectious and dangerous as the Delta variant is, this isn't eighteen or even twelve months ago. More than 60% of the adult population of Sarasota and Manatee counties is well protected. It's vaccinated! Very, very few of them are among the seriously sick or hospitalized. The state has reported that in recent weeks many more people are becoming vaccinated.
The Show Will Go On, But With Requirements.
We are planning between 90 to l00 performances over the next twelve months. Most are familiar, some are new. Some large, some small. Some inside, some outside. Each situation is different, and so the requirements will be adjusted to fit the event. In general, we will implement well established safety protocols erring on the side of caution. When the performance space requires strict precautions, we will be strict. We don’t expect everyone will always agree with our requirements.
Here’s the bottom line:
- We don’t want anyone to get seriously sick because they attended a Jazz Club performance.
- Unvaccinated people are at a much greater risk of getting seriously ill.
- We don’t want anyone, vaccinated or unvaccinated, to attend one of our events if they feel uncomfortable about their exposure to risk.
