Our planning for the fall semester’s “return to normal” in teaching and performing activities has been affected by the rising COVID-19 infection numbers in the state and across the nation, and the corresponding Monroe County/IU-Bloomington mask mandate for indoor activities. The vaccination rates among faculty, students, and staff on the Bloomington campus are very high, and the plans for addressing the unvaccinated population are thorough; and we believe that we can safely continue with all of our fall semester instructional activity, while adhering for the most part to the indoor mask mandate.
Masking is required for patrons inside all IU facilities. The Jacobs School has developed public health guidelines and procedures, in consultation with Indiana University's Chief Health Officer and the Bloomington campus administration, to allow for certain activities to be performed unmasked. Wind and brass instrumentalists, and singers in principal roles, may remove their masks in order to perform, and our thorough and detailed public health practices make it possible for our students to receive the greatest benefit from their professional training in a safe environment.
