Participants should wear clothing suitable for unrestricted movement.

COVID-19 & Campus Policies (2022—subject to change)

All attendees will be required to provide proof of vaccination and identification at conference check in, with exceptions for children under the age of 12 and people with a medical condition or closely held religious belief that prevents vaccination. Attendees who fall into one of these exception categories must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test (either a PCR test taken within 72 hours of check in, or an antigen test taken within 24 hours of check in).

All individuals in indoor public areas, classrooms and studios in the Conservatory are expected to be effectively masked. Individuals who are alone in an office or practice room can be unmasked. However, individuals must always be masked when others are present.

Because we all share keyboards, practice rooms, chairs, and desks, we are each expected to wipe down our keyboards, chairs, desks and door handles before and after each use. Wipes are provided in each classroom, teaching studio, and practice room for this purpose. Hand sanitizing stations are abundant within the Conservatory and should be used frequently.

The Conservatory will continue using HEPA air cleaners, bipolar ionization cleaning (through both the HVAC system and portable units), and elevated HVAC air exchange and filtration rates.

Please refrain from eating or drinking in classrooms or rehearsal spaces, with the exception of water.

Participants are not permitted to make their own recordings of sessions without written permission from the instructor.
