GHMS COVID-19 Policies


[as of March 7, 2022]

The following is a list of important steps and measures that all employees, students, and visitors of GHMS should understand and follow as we enter the Music School building.

  • All employees of the Music School, including staff, faculty, teaching artists, and consultants are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
  • All vaccine-eligible students or visitors ages 5 and up must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19, or submit, on a weekly basis, a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within the prior five days, or a medical exemption. Children ages 5 and under do not need to be tested.
  • Visitors (who are not students, or parents of students) must provide contact information at the front desk, in order to facilitate contact tracing, if needed.
  • All staff, faculty, students, and visitors must provide proof of a negative PCR COVID-19 test if they have traveled internationally, before returning to the building.
  • All staff, faculty, and visitors to GHMS must wear facial coverings/masks at the Music School at all times.
  • If you are sick, stay home, and contact the Registrar, and/or your teacher. In case of sickness, makeup lessons may be scheduled for online with the faculty.
  • Students must bring their own strings, instruments, pencils, and music.
  • Each studio has a window that can open, as well as one clean, working fan that will help contribute to airflow.
  • To attend events and rent space at Greenwich House Music School, you must present proof of a COVID-19 vaccination prior to building entry. Proof of vaccination can be your CDC card or a photo of your CDC card with ID, the NY State Excelsior pass app, or the NYC COVID Safe App.
