Members of a US high school marching band aren't letting Covid-19 stop the music. They're social distancing in individual 'pods'.

Members of the Wenatchee High School's marching band are rehearsing in individual pop-up tents.

While practise quarters may be a little restricted, the Golden Apple Marching Band is tops in the social distancing charts.

Principal Eric Anderson says the bright idea came from the school's music and theatre teachers and has been approved by the local health authorities.

Watch the band in action below:
