Hochstein's COVID Safety Information


Monday, January 10, 2022 


Dear members of the Hochstein community,
NEW GUIDELINES: Please Click here to access the Student COVID-19 Guidance document which outlines what to do in the event of symptoms, exposure, or a positive test.

Below please find a grid of our general safety protocols when in our building. Directly below the grid, we have outlined specific protocols for attending student concerts and/or recitals in a bulleted format.

Please note that rental concerts and WXXI's Live from Hochstein concerts may have different protocols. Please check out the individual event listings on our Calendar page for that information. 

Thank you for your cooperation and for your continued support for keeping all members of our community safe.
