Personal Responsibility

Best practices for keeping our singers—and you family—safe.

We ask that families partner with Chicago Children’s Choir to keep our community safe. We strongly encourage vaccination, as singers are eligible. Additionally, where COVID testing is available weekly in schools, we encourage families to take advantage of this service.

In lieu of completing a health screening, we ask families assess singers for the following symptoms:

  • Muscle or body aches from an unknown cause

  • Fatigue from an unknown cause

  • New cough

  • Fever (100.4 or higher)

  • New onset of moderate to severe headache

  • New loss of sense of taste or smell

  • Vomiting

  • Diarrhea

  • Shortness of breath

  • Sore throat

Please keep your singer home if any of the above symptoms are present and inconsistent with previously diagnosed seasonal health conditions (allergies), or other chronic illnesses. If singers do not meet the health requirements to attend in-person programming or are forced to quarantine or isolate due to COVID exposure, please notify your Program Assistant and we will try to accommodate an opportunity to “zoom in” to rehearsal.
