MIC COVID-19 Information & Updates


Last updated: August 5, 2021

As COVID-19 statistics continue to worsen, the Music Institute of Chicago (MIC) is making a change to its safety policies. Beginning Thursday, August 5, all visitors to Music Institute of Chicago buildings, regardless of whether they are vaccinated, will be required to wear masks. This change is made in accordance with the recent mask mandate for K-12 schools announced by Governor Pritzker and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH).

MIC staff and faculty are already required to be vaccinated and our stringent safety protocols have made MIC a safe place to work and learn. The new mask requirement is an effort to slow the spread of the Delta variant, especially among children under the age of 12 as well as those who are unable to be vaccinated.

In the days ahead, MIC will watch the data closely and monitor and respond to the evolving guidance from the IDPH and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
