COVID-19 Masking and Quarantine Policy

During this time when COVID-19 cases are high in our area and putting stress on our local hospitals, we will be following the CDC and State of Michigan guidelines regarding masking, quarantine, and testing. We will also be honoring any guidelines in which the Franke Center for the Arts puts in place. Please stay posted as these guidelines are changing often. We will continue to update our guidelines as recommendations change per the CDC, State of Michigan, or the Franke Center for the Arts. We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
