March Camp Canceled Amid Coronavirus Concerns
In light of the recent Coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns, we are paying close attention to developments surrounding the virus and how it may affect Genesis DBC operations. As more information is revealed, we have prepared to make any changes to plans and procedures to continue our mission of prioritizing the health and wellness of our performers, volunteers, and staff.
At the time that we are posting this, the threat level for COVID-19 in Austin, TX is low, however South by Southwest (SXSW)— the music festival scheduled for March 13-22, 2020— has been canceled.
In light of this decision by the city of Austin, the Genesis DBC administrative team has come to the decision that it is appropriate to cancel the rehearsal camp scheduled for March 13-15, 2020.
We encourage everyone to educate themselves on COVID-19 and best practices for preventing the spread of the virus. What we know about COVID-19 is that it’s spread from person to person, so we will continue to put emphasis on:
- Regular hand-washing with soap and warm water
- Refraining from touching the face and mouth
- Discouraging sharing food and beverages
We are following official sources for our updates, and we recommend that you bookmark these to remain informed:
The CDC provides daily updates that we will continue to follow and use to inform our decisions. We will notify all Genesis DBC performers, families, and staff of any further changes immediately. If you have any concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out to us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
