DPO Covid Policy

DPO INDOOR EVENT COVID POLICY

THIS POLICY APPLIES TO ALL DPO MUSICIANS, BOARD MEMBERS, VOLUNTEERS, WORKSHOP PARTICIPANTS & AUDITIONEES

To participate in any indoor DPO event, you must be fully vaccinated with an FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) or WHO (World Health Organization) emergency or full-approved COVID-19 vaccine. Proof of vaccination is required before your first DPO event. “Fully vaccinated” means at least two weeks after a person’s second dose in a two-dose series and two weeks after a single-dose vaccine.

An exception to this vaccine mandate may be made if a person has a documented medical condition preventing vaccination or an objection based on a bona fide religious belief that would require a reasonable accommodation under the law. Proof of a medical exemption is a note from a licensed physician. Proof of religious exemption is a note from a clergy. If the accommodation is granted, the vaccine-exempt person must show proof of a negative COVID-19 test. The person’s role within the DPO will determine the number and timing of these tests.

A face covering order is in effect in the city of Denver until 11:59 p.m. Jan. 3, 2022, unless otherwise extended or rescinded. This order requires individuals aged 2 and older to wear an effective face covering over their nose and mouth in public indoor spaces (including churches).

Individuals actively engaged in a performing arts event indoors are exempted from the face covering order so long as the individual maintains at least twelve (12) feet from non-household members.

Do not participate in any DPO activity if you feel sick, have new loss of taste or smell, or have a temperature of 100.4 or above.

This policy is subject to change at any time based on the latest guidance, data, and events relating to the covid-19 pandemic.
