The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute in Los Angeles strongly recommends students and employees stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations. Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is the health practice proven most effective in preventing severe illness and death. LSTFI encourages students/employees to stay informed regarding COVID-19 vaccine effectiveness, safety, types and current recommendations based on age, health and vaccination history.
Effective November 1, 2023, LSTFI will not require students and employees to submit proof of vaccination status to gain access to campus facilities and activities. However, a COVID-19 vaccination requirement may be instituted in the future, should immunization against COVID-19 be required by state or local public health departments, and/or vaccination becomes necessary to prevent transmission within the LSTFI community. Please see our Reopening Script for full details and protocols.
