COVID Safety and Security

How will I be safe?


The Detroit Jazz Workshop goes through extensive safety protocols to make sure to the best of its ability, that you or your student can study at the DJW, knowing that we are structuring a comfortable, safe environment.


All students, faculty, and staff receive a lanyard that must be worn while on campus. Only DJW personnel will be allowed. Lanyards will make faculty, mentors, and students easily recognizable.


There is one entrance to the MSU-CMS building which is helmed by a security guard. The only people allowed to come to our floor are on our list. The door must be unlocked electronically by the guard.


Students under 18 years of age must receive parental written permission to leave campus during the DJW. Students are accounted for at all times.


There will always be a faculty, staff member, or adult mentor in the rehearsal rooms at all times.



All students must prove that they have received a COVID  test one week before attending the DJW.


Students are recommended to wear masks. MSU cannot enforce a mask policy. Students in the process of playing wind instruments or singing should remove masks.


No eating will be allowed on campus. Students should eat lunch before the 1pm arrival and will eat dinner after the 5:30pm leave time.
