OCCB Covid-19 Updates
The Onkaparinga City Concert Band is remaining alert but not alarmed as we all navigate our way through the COVID-19 pandemic.
The health and wellbeing of our members and the community remains our top priority. At this stage, rehearsals and performances with fewer than 500 people will go ahead as planned.
We are encouraging members to wash their hands often, especially after handling common property such as music stands, and to stay home if unwell.
14th March 2020 - Alert But Not Alarmed
17th March 2020 - Making Hard Decisions
It pains us to say that we have made the difficult decision to cancel band rehearsals until Easter, after which the Management Committee will reassess the situation based on the latest AHPPC advice available.
We will unfortunately also be postponing our Quiz Night (April 4), our Proms in the South (May 23) and our Band Camp (July 4-5).
The Band shares your disappointment at the postponing of these events however a prudent approach to community and member safety must prevail at this time.
We encourage all members to reach out as much as they need to during this time, and will ensure as a Band we maintain communication and check in on our members who may be vulnerable.
The Management Committee will continue to monitor the situation and the latest health advice, and will meet remotely as required to ensure the best continued action for the Band, its members and the community.
Thank you for your ongoing support
