COVID Precautions

—There is currently a 1-hour buffer time of empty space between each use. We clean the floor once a day. The person taking care of space (Linda) has been vaccinated, as has tech director Jeff, both of whom live in the building.
—we have two air purifiers, which should be turned off if you prefer open windows/door. But close windows and turn purifiers on before leaving.
—wash or sanitize hands upon entering and as you leave
—use masks to use the bathroom and lower toilet seat before flushing
—OPTIONAL: sanitize touch points you have used before you leave such as door handles and switches
There are white cloths and paper towels at tech booth and peroxide or alcohol solution in a sprayer as well as a spray disinfectant. Dampen the cloth with your cleaner for electronic type stuff. Direct spray is ok on other surfaces. Or use wipes if available in the space.

USING THE SOUND SYSTEM (there should be a copy of these directions next to the mixer)

TO TURN ON:
1. Connect your phone, laptop or other external device to one of the cables hanging out of the Mixer.

4. Master faders on right side of Mixer need to be up.
5. Adjust volume with the fader(s) on the mixer that corresponds to the cable you have used.
