Sel Kardan, Colburn School president and CEO, announced on March 12 that the school will suspend all in-person instruction, performances and related social events associated with the conservatory, music academy, dance academy, Trudi Zipper Dance Institute, Community School for Performing Arts and Center for Innovation and Community Impact in response to the coronavirus outbreak in Los Angeles County.
To date, no COVID-19 cases have been identified on campus, Kardan said, but activities will be suspended until Monday, April 13.
Colburn’s residential facilities will also close on Tuesday, March 17. All students who are currently in residence will move out of the dorms and those who are not currently on campus will not return.
Conservatory, music academy and dance academy students will transition to online learning beginning Thursday, March 23, through Wednesday, April 13. The community school and other youth dance students will continue in-person classes on April 13. However, the school will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and inform the school community of any changes.
The school has enacted measures to ensure the safety of the campus community, such as installing hand sanitizer stations throughout the campus, cleaning of hot-spot areas and beginning the special disinfecting procedures of pianos on campus.
Colburn community members have been encouraged to wash their hands frequently, stay home when sick and avoid handshakes in day-to-day interactions.
