Winter 2022 COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement

The School of Music requires proof of vaccination for in-person auditions. Auditionees will be asked to present proof of vaccine to UW Music Staff upon entry to the audition. Individuals unable to be fully vaccinated, such as people with a medical or religious exemption, must have proof of a negative COVID PCR test (taken within 72 hours of arrival).

Additionally, masking is required inside UW buildings. Eating or drinking will not be permitted inside the Music Building.

The UW requires all visitors to self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms and requires that auditionees must stay home if symptomatic or if instructed to isolate or quarantine by a public health professional, regardless of vaccination status.
