COVID-19 Policies for MRC

3/17/2020 UPDATE:

Dear MRC Community,

With the MRC being closed to members as long as Charlottesville City Schools remain closed, we wanted to provide you with some ways to remain engaged with the MRC as well as with music in general.

Interested in taking lessons via facebook or skype?

  • We are currently attempting to move our lessons online. 
  • Please email Lucas@musicresourcecenter.org for details. 
  • If a member needs to borrow an instrument from the MRC during the break, we can coordinate that. 

Ways MRC members can earn points: 

(must use #MRCAthome or email musicresourcecenter@gmail.com)

  • Each Monday we will be posting a new artist/band of the week on Facebook and Instagram. MRC members can earn points when they post a fact about the artist/band. 
  • Post or email us a video doing something musical:
    • Dancing
    • Singing 
    • Making a beat
    • Recording and or writing a song
    • Practicing an instrument 

Other Free Online resources

If you are in need of any additional resources, music related or not, please do not hesitate to ask. We hope to see you all at the MRC again soon! In the meantime stay healthy.

All our best , 

MRC Staff


3/13/2020 UPDATE:

Dear MRC Community, 

With the recent news that Governor Northam has closed all Virginia K-12 schools for at least the next two weeks, the Music Resource Center will also be closed to members, effective today at 5:00pm. The MRC will remain closed as long as Charlottesville City Schools remain closed.

Stay tuned for updates, via social media and email, on ways we plan to keep members engaged over the upcoming weeks. This will include lessons via video chat as well as ways for members to continue to earn MRC points. 

Please stay safe and healthy and we hope to see you all again soon!

Thank you, 

MRC Staff

Dear MRC Community, 

As the Charlottesville community continues to feel the impact of Coronavirus, we wanted to share with you the steps we, at the Music Resource Center, are taking to keep people safe and healthy.

  • Each day before we open to members, staff is wiping down all surfaces with sanitizing wipes.
  • We have asked members, parents, volunteers, and staff not to enter the MRC if they:
    • have recently traveled by airplane
    • have been in an affected community
    • have come in contact with anyone infected with COVID-19
    • If ANY of the above apply, they will need to wait 14-days from the date of return or exposure to return to MRC in order to ensure they are not sick
  • Once they enter the MRC we ask that they:
    • use hand sanitizer when they arrive at the MRC OR wash their hands with soap and water for 20 seconds
    • avoid physical contact
    • use their own personal water bottle or MRC provided cup for the water fountain

The MRC plans to follow the schools schedule for closing. Since schools are closed Monday March 16th, the MRC will also be closed to members. If the schools reopen on Tuesday, the MRC will also be open.

If/when the schools do close we have a plan in place to keep members engaged. We will share this plan once the time comes. 

Sincerely, 

Alice Fox
