COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan

Date: September 7, 2022

Community Music Center of Boston (CMCB) remains committed to providing the most safe space possible for our faculty, students, staff, and community.

The latest version of CMCB’s Health and Safety Plan was released September 7.

Given the lower COVID-19 rates throughout the City of Boston and Boston Public Schools decision to lift their mask mandate effective June 13th, CMCB has made the decision to move to MASK STRONGLY RECOMMENDED beginning Monday, June 27th. This means that beginning Monday, CMCB will not require masks in all circumstances. There may be classes or activities which will be designated as Mask Required. 

We have adopted the following 3 stages and provided definitions as below, with Mask Strongly Recommended, highlighted in blue. Please note mask wearing is always welcome in our space.

Mask Required: Masks are required for all of those over the age of 2 when in CMCB at all times unless actively eating, drinking, or playing an instrument that requires mask removal.

Mask Strongly Recommended: CMCB strongly encourages mask use in our space, and while it isn’t required, CMCB reserves the right to designate certain activities as Mask Required based on factors such as room capacity, high exposure risk, etc.

Mask Optional: This is a return to a pre-COVID state. Masks are not required and individuals will not be asked to wear masks. There will continue to be support for those who choose to wear masks. 

 If you should have any questions or concerns, please reach out to CMCB’s COVID Workplace Coordinators, Meghan Jasani ( and Ariel Carmichael (
