It’s not exactly breaking news that the entertainment industry has predominantly come to a halt. I have no idea how those who rely 100% on their income providing entertainment are surviving.
I used to receive multiple inquiries for work each week…more than enough to keep me busy during my retirement years. A few months ago that stopped…nothing.
I recently received an inquiry for an event in Rhode Island with attendance of 60 people. The number bothered me, there is a pandemic going on. So, I felt it was not worth the risk.
We all have to weigh the risks we personally take with consideration to any risk we may expose to others. I do see my actions can have consequence to others…I do not live in a bubble. (Almost a bubble 🙁 )
There is no magic number, but I was presented the opportunity to perform for 15 adults in a “safe” environment. At the time of the event the state of Massachusetts was doing well. I believe the risk was extremely low, and the reward extremely high.
So now, I wait…avoiding the public. If absolutely necessary I may adventure out at off hours, with my mask. Properly worn and fitted.
