I am fully vaccinated, having received my second Moderna dose on April 1. I listen to the scientists and decide what is safe for me and others. I plan on getting the booster when it’s available.
The science I have read states that the chance of a vaccinated person contracting the virus is not 0, so I have adapted my protocol as follows:
Douglas County has one of the highest Covid infection rates in Oregon. I’m cautious in public, wearing my mask, social distancing and avoiding crowds. If I don’t hear otherwise from you, my assistant and I will arrive at your home wearing masks. I’m comfortable keeping my mask on during my visit. However, I’ll also be happy to take it off if everyone I am dealing with has been vaccinated.
Here is what I ask of you.
- If anyone in your household shows any symptoms consistent with COVID-19 infection, let’s reschedule our appointment
- It would be good if nobody was in the same room as the piano for an hour prior to my arrival, and please clear everything off the top of the piano before I arrive.
- Please do not be in the room where I am working or allow anyone else to be there.
- My assistant can wait in the car if you are not comfortable with her remaining in your home as I work on your piano.
If there is any additional protocol you wish me to follow, let me know.
If you’re an anti-masker or think all this is hogwash, please find another piano technician who shares your views.
