AFI’s campus is currently open for Conservatory Fellows and Faculty. Staff will coordinate with their supervisors for campus access. Health and safety remain our primary goal in these uncertain times. Anyone returning to the AFI Campus will be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 PCR test result from within 72 hours of their visit.


In the creation of the reopening plan, the AFI was guided by a commitment to promote the wellbeing of our community and preserve the academic mission of the Conservatory through a focus on five principles: Health and Safety, Access, Flexibility, Equity and Stewardship.


AFI is implementing changes to its protocols to promote health and safety. All staff will coordinate with their supervisors to determine the best work site for them. Everybody on campus must wear a face covering while indoors per LA County Health Order. All unvaccinated individuals seeking access to campus will have their temperature checked and be required to conduct a screening for symptoms or exposures related to COVID-19. Fully vaccinated individuals will confirm their vaccination status upon arrival to campus and are not required to undergo temperature checks.
