SOA is going CBT in the fall. What they need to do is to move the spring exams to fall.

I like the idea of getting a test before going. How would those family members feel about that though? Or is this a "take a test or don't go" thing?

That would be my guess too. It depends on the length of time though, since viral load is an important factor like you said. So grocery shopping for 30 minutes is no big deal but sharing an office...

It's irresponsible to hold these exams at all. Given the number of candidates, there's a near 100% chance that somebody will have Covid-19 during the time of exam.

I thought the supervisor has to be credentialed, but the proctor does not. Though they may have lax the rules for this sitting.

Pretty new to operas here. I noticed that some recent productions tend to have a more modern interpretation/setting. Is it because they don't want it to look too similar to the previous production?
