COVID-19 Protocol

The Colburn School’s utmost priority lies in the health and safety of its students, families, faculty, staff, and visitors. Throughout the pandemic, the Colburn School has carefully monitored COVID-19 locally as well as county, state, and federal guidelines regarding educational institutions.

With safety foremost in mind, we have developed protocols to protect our community. Thank you in advance for carefully following our guidelines below!

Mask Policy

Masks must be worn inside all buildings on the Colburn campus. Well-fitting and better filtering masks (e.g., double masks, high filtration cloth masks, medical masks) and respirators (e.g., N95s, KN95s, KF94s) are highly recommended. Face coverings are required for all lessons, rehearsals, and performances involving more than one person. The only exception is for wind and brass musicians while playing. 

On-Campus Testing Hours and Information

Free COVID-19 testing is available on campus for all Colburn students, faculty, and staff.

A daily health check is required for faculty and staff accessing the Colburn campus even though security staff will no longer be verifying that it has been completed. You can access our Daily Health Questionnaire and complete the health check at home before you leave for campus.

Additional Safety Guidelines

Do not eat indoors. Designated eating areas are outdoors in the Plaza and Café seating area.

Do not use any cleaning products on the pianos. Our production assistants and piano technology staff will be cleaning equipment frequently. If you wish to bring your own cleaning wipes, they may be used on doorknobs and furniture. They cannot be used on the piano as they damage the instrument.
