*Guidelines as of September 9th, 2021*

Kainga Music is excited to resume in-person lessons and wants to do so in the safest way possible. If students are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms or have had recent contact with anyone with COVID-19, please stay home and take advantage of our virtual and recorded lessons.

Kainga Music instructors are fully vaccinated and will wear masks while teaching. During lessons, we will keep the doors/windows open to promote ventilation.

When the doors/windows must be closed due to weather or other reasons, we will follow the current CDC/San Diego County recommendation and require that all participants wear masks. For these situation, Kainga Music will have extra masks available for students without them.

Kainga Music has sanitizer and disinfectant wipes available for use throughout the lesson.

When Kainga Music performs, we will follow the particular venue's COVID guidelines.
