COVID-19 safety protocols for Department of Music events (updated Nov. 4)

Nov 4 2021

The Stanford Department of Music looks forward to presenting in-person events in our venues again as we begin the 2021-22 academic year. Our patrons should be aware that campus-wide COVID policies are still in effect. The following policies are based on current state, local, and university guidance. As has been the case for the past several months, this information is subject to change; we will keep you informed via our various publicity channels and signage posted at our venues regarding current COVID policies applying to our concerts.

  • Patrons should stay home if they are experiencing a fever or any COVID-19 symptoms, have tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 14 days, or have had close contact with anyone who is confirmed or is suspected of having COVID-19. 

  • In accordance with University requirements for visitors, all visitors (including children) coming to Stanford for indoor or outdoor activities must meet at least one of two criteria:
    — 1) Be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
    — 2) Receive a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to arrival onsite. (At-home tests are allowed for children.)

  • For Memorial Church events, all attendees (over 2 years old) must:
    — Be fully vaccinated or test negative for COVID (test must be taken no earlier than 72 hours before arriving at Stanford Memorial Church).
    For non-ticketed events only: Register upon arrival. A QR code will be provided to launch a Google form for contact tracing.
    Stanford Affiliates: Show your green Stanford Health Check badge.
    Off-campus visitors: Bring your ID and a hard copy, paper photocopy or a clear photo of the test results or vaccine card. Documents will be checked for entry.
    — Wear a face covering at all times while inside Memorial Church.
    — Social Distancing is encouraged.

  • Masks are required for both unvaccinated and vaccinated patrons across all Department of Music venues. Patrons should bring their own face masks that fully cover their nose and mouth and must wear them at all times. Masks with valves will not be allowed.

  • While we are taking measures to enhance the safety of our patrons and employees, an inherent risk of exposure to and infection with COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present, and a visit to a Department of Music venue may still pose a risk to your safety. By visiting a Department of Music event, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure of COVID-19. Failure to follow these guidelines will result in removal from the venue.
