15 Sep COVID-19 Mask Policy Update
Effective Sunday, October 16, masks will be optional in all locations at the John C. Campbell Folk School, including in studios, the Craft Shop, Dining Hall, and at Olive’s Porch. This policy change applies to instructors, students, staff, Resident Artists, and visitors. Mask use is still recommended as a means to reduce the spread of COVID.
Winter Dance Week and other dance-intensive classes will still require masks, in line with recommendations from dedicated dance organizations. For Winter Dance Week students and instructors, detailed information will be provided soon.
The Folk School’s overall visitation policy has not changed. Visitors are welcome in Keith House, the Craft Shop, the History Center, and outdoor locations; Studios will remain open to registered students only.
As we’ve seen throughout the pandemic, the landscape can frequently change. It may become necessary that mask requirements be reenacted to keep our Folk School community safe.
We understand that comfort levels around COVID vary greatly and encourage you to reach out to the following contacts with any questions or concerns.
