COVID-19 FAQs for State and Local Music Teacher Associations

As a service to our state and local affiliates, MTNA has asked its legal counsel, Scott Gilligan, to answer these and other frequently asked questions. In addition, Mr. Gilligan has prepared an "Association Waiver and Release of Liability for Exposure to COVID-19" form you may use at your events. The form provides guidelines each attendee must follow, and, when signed, releases your association from liability due to COVID-19. Learn More.
