Policies for the Use of Kimbrough Music Building During Covid-19

Please read the following policies that must be followed in order to use the facilities in Kimbrough Music Building. University administration agreed to our use of the building based on our safe practices and our ability to follow the protocols. Help us maintain our privilege to open Kimbrough Music building by following these guidelines:

Students will be allowed to be in the building only at their assigned time. You should go in for your scheduled time, do what you are there to do and exit the building when you are done. Please discuss schedule changes with your studio teacher.

Any other business with a studio teacher, the office or your advisor should be scheduled by contacting faculty or staff:

Prior to entering the building you must attest on MyWSU:

Masks are required at all times, unless you are actually required to remove your mask to play.

Masks must be worn by non-wind and non-brass during practice.

You must honor practice start and end times - because they have been scheduled with appropriate air changing times to clear contaminants from each room.

Pathways have been established in the building. Please follow to maintain social distancing. The stairwells have been assigned (the stairway near the Chinook is UP and the stairwell near the CUB is DOWN).

All entrances are open. Choose the entrance closest to your destination.

Water fountains are not available. Please bring your own supply. However, the bottle filler on 2nd floor is operational.

Disinfecting supplies and directions are in all the practice rooms. Please be sure to adequately sanitize all the equipment, furniture and instruments that you touch.
