What ages do you suggest these shows for?

What Covid-19 precautions are you taking for in-person shows?

During in-person shows, I wear a mask at all times and stay at least 6 feet or more away from others.  I also bring my own table and PA system with extra-long extension cords so my setup is contactless. I request that shows are either performed outside (preferred), or if indoors, in as large a room as possible.
