Covid Protocols

Updated January 4, 2022

All NJIO staff are fully vaccinated. Additionally, these protocols are in place for musicians, staff, and guests.

  • Anyone in our facilities, including but not limited to students, faculty, programming, and administrative staff, will need to wear masks at all times.

  • All members who are not fully vaccinated will be required to show a negative covid test result taken 72 hours before each event. 

  • All wind and brass players will wear masks and have bell covers on their instruments while playing when practical.

  • Members and staff will maintain three feet of distance while playing in ensembles. 


The New Jersey Intergeneration Orchestra is dedicated to providing a safe environment for our members. We continuously stay up to date with covid protocols and adapt to whatever the circumstances require.  The building we rehearse in has had the following updates. 

  • Our HVAC systems in our buildings have been upgraded with new filters and have been altered so that fresh air is brought into the building at all times.

  • All of our smaller teaching studios have been fitted with Dyson TP04 air purifiers which are activated 24/7 to provide the cleanest air possible.

  • Our three rehearsal halls (Burgdorff, Hyde & Watson, and the Wharton Black Box Theater) have all been fitted with the Molekule Air Purifier Pro-Rx which is an FDA-approved device that is specially designed to purify the air in large spaces.
