Covid-19 Updates

Passim Vaccination Policy

Effective August 6, 2021, Passim will require all staff, performers, and patrons to show proof of COVID-19 vaccine when they work, attend performances, classes, and workshops at Passim. Patrons will be asked to show their vaccination card or a photo of their vaccination card when they enter the club. Patrons will be asked to show proof each time they visit the club. If a patron is not able to show proof of vaccination they will not be allowed to attend the performance, and their ticket purchase will be refunded.

During COVID, Passim has invested in its live stream capability, and we encourage patrons who have not been vaccinated or others who don’t feel comfortable yet visiting the club to watch the live streams or attend online classes instead. If you purchased a ticket but aren’t feeling well, please stay home and watch the livestream instead.

Effective September 3, 2021, the City of Cambridge has issued an emergency order requiring that face masks or coverings be worn in indoor public places. Patrons and staff must wear masks at Passim unless actively eating or drinking. Artists may remove masks when performing and will maintain a 6-ft distance from the audience. Visit www.cambridgema.gov/covid19/facecoverings for full information on the Cambridge mask mandate.

Passim is committed to providing a safe environment for all to work, listen, and enjoy live music. It is our hope that we can ease these restrictions once further progress has been made reducing transmission of the virus. Until then, we appreciate your patience and cooperation.

 

School of Music Policies

While we are excited to make music together in person again, we take the health and safety of our community very seriously. Limited in-person classes will be available at the Passim School of Music this fall semester.

To protect our instructors, staff, and all students, we have begun to require proof of vaccination for all indoor in-person events, classes, and shows. We understand not everyone is able to receive the vaccination, which is why we are continuing to offer some classes entirely online as well as a handful of online seats in select hybrid courses.

We will mitigate infection risk by:

  1. Upholding a social commitment to the well being of the School and its community, all students, teachers, and  staff will work together by:

    • Staying home when sick

    • Obey all relevant COVID health protocols at all times

    • Reporting exposure you have had to a person who is COVID-19 positive to rachel@passim.org

    • Leave the school if experiencing any symptoms of illness during class

    • Quarantine when necessary

  1. Safety measures

    • All students & instructors must wear masks indoors unless they are actively drinking.  Masks will be available at the door if needed.

    • 15 extra minutes will be added in-between classes to allow more space and time for folks to come and go. In-person class times will be 6:30-7:45pm and 8:15-9:30pm

    • Frequent hand washing & sanitizing

    • No food or drink apart from bottled water is allowed.

    • Facility Sanitation before, in-between, and after classes meet

    • Increased Ventilation & air purification – our building has a great AC unit and we are installing air purifiers in each classroom. Windows can also be opened, weather permitting.

  1. Hybrid Learning Opportunities

    • This fall we are testing out a new way of learning by offering several online seats for a few in-person classes. Instructors will Zoom those students into the classroom via iPad

    • This can also be used for students who feel ill but do not want to miss a class

    • Lessons will be recorded and uploaded to the cloud. Students will be able to access recordings for playback at any time during the semester
