Covid-19 Protocols



The Western Piedmont Symphony will follow all COVID-19 protocols for each performance venue.

P.E. Monroe Auditorium, Lenoir-Rhyne University

From Lenoir-Rhyne University:


  • Beginning with fall 2022 semester, COVID-19 vaccines, including all booster shots, are strongly recommended for students, but are no longer required. 
  • Being up to date on COVID-19 vaccines, including having all recommended booster shots, determines quarantine guidelines and can reduce the risk of severe disease and hospitalization. 
  • Masks remain optional with the following exceptions:

    • Individual instructors may require masks in their classrooms as part of their standard classroom management and students will adhere to the classroom requirement.
    • Those visiting Cornerstone Health Services may be required to wear masks when entering the facility.
    • Individuals are required to wear a mask indoors for the specified number of days when exposed to COVID-19, are symptomatic, or test positive.

    While masks are not required except as noted above, anyone who feels more comfortable wearing a mask on campus is encouraged to do so, as it is the best method for prevention in addition to vaccines.

J.E. Broyhill Civic Center

From J.E. Broyhill Civic Center:

Beginning Feb. 21, face coverings will be optional with the exception of individuals who test positive for COVID-19 or have had a continuous exposure to a positive COVID-19 case. Those individuals may be required to wear a face covering when indoors upon returning to campus up to 10 days depending on the circumstances. Guidelines are subject to change.
