Hochstein's COVID Safety Information
Updated January 26, 2023
Hochstein will monitor community transmission rates and will adjust our mitigation policies based on the current level, as summarized below.
According to the CDC, Monroe County’s current status is MEDIUM.
Please note that activities held in the DUPC building are subject to any additional COVID-19 protocols enforced by the DUPC administration.
Low – Masks are optional both in our building and at DUPC.
Medium – Masks are encouraged in our building, especially in common areas and groups. At DUPC, masks are recommended for high-risk persons in public-use and connecting spaces including hallways, elevators, and restrooms.
High – Masks are strongly recommended and may be required in our building; this could include playing masks and bell covers for wind and brass players. Performance and distancing protocols are to be determined. At DUPC, masks are required in public-use and connecting spaces including hallways, elevators, and restrooms. In spaces that are exclusively used by Hochstein (e.g. orchestra rehearsals in Celebration Hall or the Shaw Room, the fourth floor studios and lounge), masks are strongly recommended but are not required.
