HCD COVID-19 Policies

In collaboration with the University of Hartford, the Hartt School Community continues to closely monitor the spread of COVID-19. We are taking steps to keep our you and your families healthy and informed. 

Below are the most recent updates to our COVID Policy. We must continue to keep safety at the forefront so that everyone can make the most of this year. 

The following protocols have been reviewed by and are aligned with University policies:

  • Vaccinations - We will no longer be requiring the submission of proof of vaccination or waiver forms.
  • Tests - Weekly tests are no longer required for non-vaccinated students and/or adults.
  • Reporting Positive Tests - Positive results should be reported to the Community Division’s COVID Coordinator at
  • Quarantine Protocols - We will continue to follow the University and CDC quarantining guidelines for positive COVID test results. The length of isolation will be five days from symptom onset or from the date of your positive test if no symptoms are present. A negative test is NOT required to return to campus. However, you will be required to wear a mask for an additional five days when in the presence of others. This five days is in addition to the isolation period.
  • Masking - Masks that cover the face and nose will be required in classrooms and office spaces, unless otherwise specified by the faculty or staff member. They will also be required in Health Services, at COVID-19 testing locations, and in all performance spaces, including theaters. Approved masks are detailed in our face covering policy. Be sure to carry a mask with you at all times.

Guidelines are subject to change depending on current conditions and will continue to be in alignment with the University and the CDC. 

If you have any questions, please contact the Community Division’s COVID Coordinator at
