Dance Lady Aelia Fortunata
Liber Editor Lord Orlando dei Medici
Marshal Fence Lord Zohane Faber
Thursday practice in Cambridge will resume, and Wednesdays in Framingham. An advanced sign up is currently in place for Cambridge to comply with the 15 person limit. Framingham has not been large enough to require it, but we are keeping an eye on it.
Masks are required at all times, even while fighting.
Frithuric: Query with regards to the 15 person limit: Is it 15 people at a time, or 15 for the whole event?
Seneschal: Our current understanding is 15 at a time, but a message has been sent to the Kingdom Seneschal.
Simultaneous events in completely separate spaces with separate Covid checks can have 15 in each space. (This didn’t answer the question, but is useful information).
If someone leaves, another individual may fill their space, but there should be some time delay before the new arrival is admitted, depending on ventilation.
