KMTA COVID-19 Response: March 9, 2020

Your Board of Directors and the event chairs for all upcoming chapter events are working together to monitor the public health situation and make decisions about whether to proceed. Please see our statement in the BULLETIN sidebar, to the right of this post and also on the main page.

Registration for the Music Carnival in April continues this week. With our full-refund policy, students who are wavering about registering should be encouraged to do so.

Information about changes to specific upcoming events will be communicated separately as these decisions are made. Watch for news reports about school districts in our area. You can also find up-to-date community health information at Kitsap Public Health’s website, This website also has good information about best practices for keeping yourself and those around you healthy, and what to do if you experience symptoms.

Watch for more bulletins soon,

Your KMTA Board
