Last Updated: June 3, 2021

Regardless of an individual’s vaccination status when visiting TRC, for now, please continue to come prepared to:

  • Wear a mask: Masks are still required in all common areas.
  • Practice Social Distancing: Stay 6 feet apart from anyone outside your group.
  • Wash your hands!: Hand sanitation stations are also available all over the place!
  • Stay home if you are sick: You can continue to cancel or reschedule sessions at any time without penalty.

We’re so excited to welcome you back.

In preparation, we’ve updated our operating practices and added critical technology. Let’s work together to keep the TRC community as safe and healthy as possible!

Stay home if you are sick

You can cancel your session at any time without penalty.

TRC will be operating at a limited capacity.

  • We are altering our operations to minimize the number of people and sessions that will be in the facility at any one time. Check out the capacity limits for each studio here.
  • We are leaving ample time between sessions to give our staff enough time to sanitize all surfaces and equipment between all sessions.

Book your session ahead of time.

  • View studio availability, create an account, and book online by clicking the “Reserve Now” button at the top of the screen.
  • If you’d like to make a same-day reservation (or if you want to reach us for any other reason), call us at 617-765-0155, chat with us using the bubble in the bottom corner of the screen, or email us at booking@therecordco.org.
  • In the future, we are excited to make sessions available on a walk-in basis, but for now, we are holding off on that for the sake of safety.

Cancel your session if you're not feeling well, or if you think you may have been exposed to the virus.

  • For now, cancellations are available at any time and are free of charge; just hit us up as soon as you know you need to cancel. A full refund will be initiated at the time of your cancellation, no questions asked.

Wear a mask.

  • Wearing a mask is required to enter the facility. If you don’t have a mask, one will be provided to you before entering.
  • Wearing a mask is required in all common areas, such as hallways, bathrooms, kitchen, and lobby areas.
  • Wearing a mask inside your recording or rehearsal studio is encouraged, but not required at all times (wearing a mask inside your studio is required whenever a member of staff is in the room with you to help out).
  • TRC staff will also always be wearing masks when in the common areas, and when helping you in your studio.
  • Wearing your mask properly (covering both nose and mouth) is required.

Practice social distancing.

  • Stay at least 6 feet away from anyone (including TRC staff) who is not in your recording/rehearsing group for that session.
  • Only one person at a time is allowed in any one bathroom (this goes for both the single-user and multi-user bathrooms).
  • Limit time outside of the studio. We’re happy to offer coffee, sodas, and other amenities to our community. Please make each trip outside of your designated studio count!
  • In order to further minimize contact with other visitors, you may only travel in one designated direction through the hallway (just like in the grocery store!). There will be arrows on the floor to remind you which way to go.

Thoroughly wash and sanitize your hands often.

  • There will be hand sanitizing stations throughout the facility, including in all entrances, common areas, and studios.
  • There will also be disinfecting cleaning supplies in all studios for you to use as you wish.

Let us know if you develop symptoms during or after your session, or test positive after your session.

  • If you develop symptoms and/or test positive for COVID within 14 days after your session, please immediately email di@therecordco.org, or call 617-765-0155.
  • We will immediately notify anyone who was in the building at the same time as you (or later on the same day). We will keep your identity and all personal info confidential.
  • For the sake of safety, our operations are already set up under the assumption that everyone is contagious. We sanitize all equipment and studios between all sessions, and we’ll be enforcing mask-wearing and social distancing in all common areas.

Technology

  • We have upgraded to touchless fixtures in the kitchen areas and bathrooms (including lights, sinks, toilets, and certain kitchen appliances).
  • Now for the fancy sci-fi shit… we have a high volume, 15-zone air conditioning system with laboratory-grade MERV 13 and UV sanitizing filtration. This facility-wide HVAC system provides continuous circulation and sanitization of breathable air.
  • Special UV lights periodically sanitize bathroom surfaces. Motion sensors ensure the room is not occupied during sanitization. Signage on bathroom doors indicates when a room has been cleaned and it’s safe to enter.

Stay up to date with health and safety info from trusted sources.

Reminder: Staying home is the safest thing you can do.

TRC will still be here waiting for you once the pandemic is over! Your wellbeing is our #1 priority. Stay informed and only do what you are most comfortable with. We love you and want you to be safe.
