We all know that life has turned upside down in 2020 and getting back to some kind of normality will take time and effort from us in the music industry – we want you to feel safe when you book us for a wedding, party or corporate event. Here are some procedures we will work by to stay safe at your venue and with your guests!
1.) When you enquire or book with us, we will discuss with you any concerns you may have in regards to the event or if you any specific requirements. We will also call the venue itself to discuss protocol with them and how we can maximise health and safety. We will also call you in the week before the event to run over both your and our expectations for the day or evening.
2.) If any of our team, or anyone in their household, experience any Covid-19 symptoms (high temperature, a new cough, loss of taste or smell) in the 2 weeks prior to the event, they will be tested for Covid-19. If found positive, or if they can’t be tested, they will be substituted for a different singer. If too many of our team are Covid-19 positive and we can’t find a substitute, we will contact you immediately to discuss steps forward – either performing with one less singer, finding you an alternative gospel choir, or refunding your entire deposit.
3.) We commit to regular checks with our team to see if they, or anyone in their household have symptoms or have tested positive for Covid-19.
4.) Our team are fully aware of social distancing guidelines, which is currently keeping two metres apart where possible and not less than one metre. We have cordless microphones which enable us to stand separately. On the day of the event, we will regularly wash our hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or use hand sanitiser. We will bring our own hand sanitiser and tissues for personal use.
5.) Wherever possible, team members will use their own transport to travel to the event. When we share cars, we commit to wearing masks on the journey, and the passenger to sit in the back seat. Cars will be thoroughly cleaned before and after the event. If public transport is used, we commit to wearing a mask throughout the journey and using hand sanitiser regularly or wearing gloves on the journey.
6.) All equipment will be cleaned between each event, and, if needed, at the event itself. Our equipment is solely used by Get Gospel and no other bands.
7.) Unfortunately, we cannot shake hands with any guests and we will avoid any close interaction with guests too.
8.) Read point 14 on our FAQs for more info on cancellations and postponements.
Do you have any questions for us? Is there anything you think we have missed? We would be grateful to hear your thoughts!
Take care, stay safe and let’s get life rolling again!
