Northern Illinois University no longer requires that masks be worn inside of university buildings during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, persons preferring to wear masks are encouraged to do so. The university guidelines for wearing masks in university buildings during the pandemic are found ​here. Changes in those guidelines will be followed by the Kishwaukee Symphony Orchestra.
