COVID-19 Mitigation Policy

Members of the Stanford Symphonic Chorus must meet Stanford's COVID-19 mitigation policy that states: the university no longer requires – but continues to strongly recommend – COVID vaccinations and boosters. In a change from past practice, masks are highly recommended, but no longer required.  Of course, participants are always welcome to remain masked if desired.
