The IUP Community Music School is an official organization at IUP, which means we follow all university guidelines regarding COVID-19 protocols.

Basic guidelines include:
  • Currently, IUP no longer requires face coverings/masks to be worn on campus, with the exception of the IUP Health Service.
  • Because individuals in private offices are permitted to ask that visitors wear masks when in these areas, when practical, private lessons will be treated the same way, and for either party (teacher and student). Anyone who wishes to wear a face covering is encouraged to do so.
  • Please: If an IUP CMS parent or student is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, has had a positive test, or has been exposed to an individual with COVID-19, please do not participate in your ensemble until symptoms have abated. For private lessons, contact your instructor to reschedule the lesson.

For more information on COVID-19, please be sure to visit IUP's comprehensive guidelines and response plan. The IUP CMS will continue to follow the lead of the university which, as indicated on the response page, will continue to follow guidance from the CDC.
