Contingency Plans & COVID-19

Updated Position of Story Crossroads (9/15/2020):

We value everyone’s health and, as the Story Crossroads Board, we constantly monitor the COVID-19 situation.  As a result, we have made some adaptations. We have virtual options as well as re-phasing into limited-sized events with required mask-wearing and sanitation measures.

The CDC has given us guidance and you can find more here:  https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/large-events/mass-gatherings-ready-for-covid-19.html

Subject to change:

  • House concerts that are outdoors/proper-distanced/masked for August -October 2020, still debating on colder months and what to do about November-February, will for sure hold March-October 2021 – 30-person seating with required pre-registration.
  • Recordings from live House Concerts – available for a two-week rental upon availability date
  • Monthly All Things Story Virtual Workshop Series – held through Zoom, various storytelling topics
  • Next Story Crossroads Festival will be May 12, 2021 – with “Virtual Day” emphasizing virtual field trips with various limited-sized/proper-distanced events for the live storytelling experience.
