COVID 19 Sanitary Guidelines for music lessons

Update – April 15th

April 15: A ministerial decree published on the evening of April 14 allows music lessons to be held at home in red zones (does not apply to emergency zones).

Exclusion of symptomatic persons from the premises

Teachers and students are advised that in the event of symptoms of cough, fever, difficulty breathing, sudden loss of smell or taste without nasal congestion or any other symptom associated with COVID-19, they should not show up for work or their class. In the event that a teacher or a student exhibits the symptoms set out above, the lessons must be carried out by videoconference. It is imperative to report any cases of COVID 19 to the administration.

Physical distance, hand washing and wearing a medical mask

-Handwash obligatory with soap and water for all students upon arrival.

-A distance of 2 meters will be requested between the teacher and the student. If the distance of two meters is respected “at all times”, no protective equipment is required.

-When it is impossible to keep a distance of 2 meters:

1. We recommend wearing a face mask by the teacher and the student.
2. There is also the possibility of installing an adequate physical barrier according to standards (eg Plexiglas) between the teacher and the student. In this case, no protective equipment is required.

-Only one parent can accompany young children. Young musicians aged 12 and over must not be accompanied.

-It will be necessary to avoid that the pupils cross. To do this, students will be asked to arrive at the correct time and wait for the student before him or her to leave the teacher’s or teacher’s home before entering. During this time, the teacher can disinfect the affected surfaces and the instrument if it is shared between the teacher and the students.

Maintaining hygiene measures with musical instruments and frequently touched surfaces

-Clean and disinfect, at least twice a day or when they are visibly soiled, frequently touched surfaces in common areas.

-Disinfection of pianos and other instruments shared between each course.
