Safety Protocols for 2023 International

Safety Protocols for 2023 International Convention

The Barbershop Harmony Society is committed to offering a safe, accessible event. Here are the measures we're taking for everyone's mutual protection.

The Barbershop Harmony Society is committed to the health and safety of our convention attendees. Along with continually seeking guidance from a team of experts and medical professionals, we are closely monitoring COVID-19 Community Levels and the ongoing evolution of event safety protocols. Our final plan for Louisville will be available no later than 45 days in advance of the event.

Although COVID-19 Community Levels are low in many areas of the United States as of October 17, nearly every in-person barbershop event over the past two years has reported additional COVID infections as a result of singing in close proximity to others. Current variants seem to be less severe than earlier forms of the virus, but people are still getting sick - some more so than others. The best way to protect yourself and others is to get vaccinated and stay up to date on all recommended vaccines.
