Hi folks, great news on Monday! We have been approved by the university to go
back to full live operation. In two weeks or so, on Monday, October 18 th , we
will go to our planned full live schedule. I've linked the schedule below so
you can know when you will be on.
We will have some extra rules and protocols to follow that everyone will need
First, we will be enforcing the vaccine passport on all people who enter the
building. If you are an on air host, you will need to provide us with proof of
your full vaccination before you enter do your first show. Drop by the station
with your documentation or QR code saved on your phone and we'll add you to the
list of authorized people allowed to be at CFBX. This means also that no
unauthorized personnel will be allowed to come to the station, so NO GUESTS
whatsoever unless we clear them through management with the vaccination
passport. This is a strict rule and we won't permit it to be violated because
we need to follow safety rules and protect all of our volunteers.
Second, everyone will have to clean down the on air booth when they finish
their show. There will be a cheat sheet in the booth reminding you what to do.
Basically, anything you touch will have to be sanitized with an anti-bacterial
wipe, which the station will provide in the booth. You'll also have to sanitize
your hands before you enter the studio, and hand sanitizer is already provided
at the station for you. You will need to quickly wipe down the buttons on the
CD players, turntables, the sound board, and the computer keyboard and mouse,
along with the surfaces in front of the on air board, computer, CD players and
the arms of the chairs. The process should take about 2-3 minutes total. Once
you have that done, leave the booth and clean the CDs you used, wiping down the
front and back of them, and refile them. Remember to sanitize your hands when
entering the station and when using the bathroom.
Third, social distancing and masking will still be important. Keep wearing your
mask inside of the station, and keep distance from other volunteers. Do not
enter the booth if another volunteer is doing their show, just remind them that
you are there, wait for them to finish santizing the studio, let them leave,
then enter the booth.
Fourth, Everyone will also be required to use a microphone sock when speaking
into the mic. We will provide them for you and you can drop by the station to
pick them up when you come by to verify your passport. We have a limited supply
of them right now, but more are on the way, so it's first come, first serve for
socks. If you don't get a sock, keep wearing your masks in the booth so you
don't spread germs onto the microphones. Remember to take your sock home with
you when you finish your show.
The remaining on air protocols we have will also need to be followed. These
No more than 2 people are allowed in the on air booth, production or the music
library at one time. This is a safety plan rule and has to be followed until
Enter through the front door and exit through the back door.
Sign in when you come into the station on the contact tracing sheet in the
lobby, and indicate your health status
You must keep the plastic barrier in the booth up and in place for safety
Keep the on air booth door open during your show to prevent unnecessary contact
to the door handles.
If you are an afternoon or night time programmer (after 5 PM), remember to get
the door code from management before your show starts.
Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
