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.

Thank you in advance for carefully following our guidelines below.

Current Mask Policy

Indoor masking is not required at Colburn, however it is highly recommended by the LA County Department of Public Health due to increased circulation of new Omicron strains, the high transmission of other respiratory illnesses including the flu and respiratory syncytial virus or RSV.

There may be exceptions in which masks will be required on campus: some instructors may continue requiring masks in their studios and classrooms and some in-person meetings may require attendees to be masked. Therefore, students should check with their instructor(s) regarding their masking policy and employees should keep a mask available for meetings.

Those exposed to the coronavirus will continue to be required to wear a mask indoors for 10 days following exposure and masks will be required through Day 10 for those who have recovered from COVID-19 (tested negative after day 5).

On-Campus Testing Hours and Information

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