Covid 19 info

Hello there! 


I hope you all are doing ok! It looks like Wilburland is all clear to open! I can’t wait to see you!


I have spent a lot of time figuring out what reopening Wilburland looks like. Here are some of the things I have put in place to keep us safe and healthy!


What I’m doing:

  • I have been very socially isolated thru all of this. I go from home to the studio where I lock the door and work alone. Then I go home. I rarely go to stores.

  • I have installed a new sink and toilet, for the client accessible bathroom in the basement. This will be available from the outside of the building and is for client use only.It Is sanitized after every session.

  • I will have a small fridge, bottled water and makings for coffee and tea in the front foyer for you.

  • I have installed studio speakers for playback, (if you don't want to review performances in headphones) and to generally facilitate communication between rooms. I also installed a laptop with screen sharing so we can interact together on the computer. You can see and hear what I'm doing, move the cursor to point things out, etc This seems to work really well!

  • I have stocked up on hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes.

  • I have a plan to wipe down and clean and sanitize after every session. Headphones, headphone mixers, microphones and anything else I can think of will be wiped down with sanitizing wipes after every session. Pop filters will also be cleaned after every session.

  • I plan to utilize my large microphone collection and rotate mics to avoid use for consecutive sessions when possible.

  • I plan to allow buffer days between sessions when possible.


What you should do:

  • If you are feeling unwell on the day of the session or are exhibiting any symptoms associated with Covid 19 you should not attend the session.

  • You must bring and wear a face mask that covers the mouth and nose when in the building, unless you are actively singing. (Neck gaiters and bandanas are not adequate face coverings.) This includes when you are playing and recording. Please bring your own mask as I cannot guarantee a supply on hand.

  • Everyone must attempt to maintain a social distance of no less than 6 feet when in the building. This will not be difficult in the main studio at Wilburland. Remember, the NYS safety guidance calls for social distance of 6 feet AND face masks when indoors.


Building access:

  • Client access is restricted to the main studio and basement client bathroom only. Clients will not be admitted in the control room or downstairs kitchen/bathroom. In addition, please plan to bring your own food and drink with you as you will not have access to the kitchen. Please do not stop at a store for food on the way here.

  • There may be a limit of how many people can be in the building. I intend to start with smaller sessions to see how things work and plan to space the sessions out to allow the virus to die out between sessions.


Anything else I can do to make you feel safe here? Please let me know!
