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. All AFI community members (subject to limited, legally required exceptions) are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. “Fully vaccinated” means you have received all primary series doses and all recommended boosters when eligible. Those with a medical or religious exemption from vaccination will be required to present a negative COVID-19 PCR test result from within 3 days 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. All unvaccinated individuals seeking access to campus will 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. Unvaccinated individuals must present a negative PCR test result from within 3 days.
