Keeping Our Community Healthy

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Berklee has been committed to keeping our community safe and informed. We implemented robust safety protocols to effectively protect the health of our community and keep our COVID-19 infection rate low.

For information about the health and safety protocols on the New York campus, visit the Berklee NYC website.

Health and Safety Protocols

We continue to develop our plans in partnership with Tufts Medical Center, along with guidance from state and local authorities. Please note that this information is subject to change, and the community will be notified of any changes accordingly.

Learn about our current protocols:

  • COVID-19 vaccination and booster requirement: All community members—students, faculty, staff, and vendor partners—at Berklee’s Boston campus are required to receive the full COVID-19 vaccination series, including a booster shot, unless they have obtained an approved medical or religious vaccination exemption.
  • Masks: Masks are optional on the Boston campus.
  • Testing: Students who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms may get a rapid antigen test at the Berklee Testing Center.
  • Quarantine and isolation: Berklee requires that community members who test positive for COVID-19 self-isolate for a period of five days regardless of previous infection, vaccination or booster status, and the presence or absence of symptoms. Instructions for isolation will be provided upon submitting your positive test result using this form.
  • Event and performance policies: There are no vaccination, testing, or masking requirements for event attendees.
