We finally got the "go ahead" for one of our regular venues after installing clear plastic screens... implementing mask and social distancing protocols, limiting the number of attendees, and other requirements from the local health authority.

At just 15 singers, it was not as big a crowd as I had hoped. This is the club where we normally had at least 35 singers, and at least that many non-singers.. But it was a whole lot better than sitting at home with the boob-tube. It sure felt great to be back.

Here is the first couple to take the floor for the initial mic check.

Gee Earl it looks more like an ER than a regular venue! While I think it is great you are working again, I don't know if I would be comfortable hosting again until the long awaited vaccine has been administered, and things we are back to a more normal situation. That is if it is possible to ever to go back to the way things were.

With the number of Covid-19 cases in our area (statistically zero), and the universal recovery rate of better than 97% in those who may contact the virus, I'd suggest a person would stand a much greater chance of dying by getting run over by a taxi-cab (or perhaps an errant moose), than contracting the disease at our club.

But even without those odds, as long as our local health authority says we're following all reasonable measures and protocols, I'm not the least bit worried.

Your mileage may, and probably does, vary.

Maybe in Canada the virus is more under control, here in the U.S. we are over 250,000 deaths and counting. Hitting almost 200,000 new infections a day. Over 85,000 are hospitalized and we are rapidly approaching maxing out our bed capacity in many states. This goes to show a public health option is needed. You are doing so much better in Canada and you have the public option, the proof is in the pudding. Stay safe and healthy, good luck.

That's why Canada shut down the US/Canadian border to recreational travelers.

I have done 7 shows since Oct 1,2020. I am extremely insistent about cleanliness, and everyone must follow basic rules to sing. My singing area is at least 12 feet from the closest listener. I have 3 fans oscillating on stage, all of them away from me.

Attendance has varied from 1/4 full to 60% full. No one has been required to wear a mask, and Florida has no requirement to do so. I take photos at every show and email them to to over 300 people. No one has responded to me about any cases of covid19 having originated at my venue.

I am doing another show tomorrow night, and in the past it has always been a very busy night.

Mrmarog it should be kept in mind that Covid-19 is not simply a respiratory disease it is far more complicated than that. Even if you show no signs of the virus and you suffer none of the signs, still you could have the virus in you. You could be a carrier and infect others.

Just because no one has responded to you about any cases of covid-19, doesn't mean they might not exist. Hosting karaoke inside during the pandemic is a potential super spreader event, no matter how many precautions you take. Covid-19 also attacks blood vessels and is a Vascular disease as well. The damage it does to blood vessels is a slow ticking time bomb that could explode at anytime. It is possible to show no signs, and yet have thousands of mini clods forming due to the immune system going into overdrive. This should be especially troubling to you Mrmarog since you have just gotten over a serious blockage in your heart that could have been fatal. I wouldn't presume to tell you what to do, just hope you stay well and safe, also those you host to, your patrons.

I am now in complete agreement with Lone Ranger. Doing karaoke inside is inviting disaster until they get the vaccine out. The aerosols don't have any place to go to dissipate. All of your singers are singing in an invisible covid cloud and will eventually get infected. They may or may not have symptoms but they will bring it home to dad or granddad to get them sick and they might actually die from complications of covid. Do you really want to be responsible for that?
