FIUMB Repopulation Plan – October 12, 2020:
*Please read the entire document!
Opening Statement:
The FIUMB will begin to return to campus beginning Monday, Oct. 12, 2020. We MUST follow all of the University COVID-19 Protocols for our safe return, see below.
Prior to arriving on campus:
*EVERYONE who is coming to campus is required to complete the P3 app (Panthers Protecting Panthers)! If you do not pass the P3 screening prior to coming to campus, you will not be allowed to rehearse! If you have any symptoms or have been exposed, contact your respective faculty member and do not come to campus until you have tested negative for COVID-19. Testing is available at Tamiami Park near the School of Music.
When you arrive on campus:
Please park only in the areas designated for your caption:
· Drumline park at W6
· Hornline park in Panther Parking Garage
· Colorguard park in the parking lot near the basketball courts.
· We have ordered masks, face coverings, and bell covers. Unfortunately, they will not be arriving until next week, so you MUST provide your own mask and bell cover (be creative, just a sock over your bell will be better than nothing!)
When you arrive at your designated parking/rehearsal location, you must show proof that you have completed the P3 screening and then have your temperature checked by a staff member. You will be assigned a rehearsal location and you must stay in that spot for the duration of each rehearsal! Everyone will be spaced at least 6 feet apart! Everyone should bring their own water as we can no longer have our water coolers.
