Campus Facilities Due Diligence

To mitigate the spread of COVID, the California Jazz Conservatory will take the following steps to ensure the health and safety of its campus community:

  • Provide every classroom at both our 2087 and 2040 Addison Street campus facilities with a BIOGS 2.0 Ultra Quiet Air Purifier by Rabbit Air. For more information, visit https://www.rabbitair.com/pages/about-us.
  • Expand janitorial service’s hours to sanitize classrooms and lavatories with CDC-approved products, including wiping down door handles, white boards and markers, music stands, chairs and table tops.

If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, or suspect you have COVID-19, stay home and minimize your contact with other people until you have not had a fever for 24 hours without using fever reducing medication AND other COVID-19 symptoms are mild and improving.

Some additional recommendations include:

  • Wear a high-quality mask when you are around other people indoors for the 10 days after you become sick or test positive (if no symptoms). You may remove your mask sooner than 10 days if you have two sequential negative tests at least one day apart.
  • Avoid places where you’re unable to wear a mask.
