 We will be using masks, distancing and have a few “sibling” tables where bells are shared.   We are fortunate 
to have a double set of bells which helps with shared accidentals.

Hi everyone:
I was wondering how you are planning your rehearsals this Fall in terms of
masks and social distancing, and sharing bells?
Thank you,

Masks, distance, air flow, disinfectant, bell shares within families. Ellie

We will continue to ring 12 bell music with no tables for the time being.
If we were to return to tables, we would still need to distance even though
we are all vaccinated as Delta is rampant. We have enough foam that we
could remove the pads from their covers and spread out to accommodate 11
people, but we don't have enough copies of any of our existing music as we
have purchased it all on the basis of sharing the music.
