ODC COVID-19 Operation Guidelines

ODC COVID-19 Operation Guidelines
Updated June 11, 2021

ODC is listening to and following guidelines from the San Francisco Department of Public Health as it pertains to all of our in-person and campus activities.

We have a team of Health & Safety Coordinators on our staff and are working diligently to create plans that are safe and suitable for everyone as ODC is given permissions to reopen to the public for in-person activities.


All building occupants will observe COVID-19 safety guidelines as required by the CDC and San Francisco Department of Public Health

While our faculty and staff across ODC worked to keep us all connected and moving together virtually, our facilities team began a remarkable project: the completion of the full restoration of the ODC campus. Awaiting your return is a comprehensive suite of repairs and renovations that was estimated to take nearly four years to accomplish!

Our studio floors have been refinished, our HVAC system has been repaired and upgraded to deliver hospital-grade filtration and air exchange speeds as well as better climate control, the worn out carpets have been replaced, electrical and lighting systems have been checked and overhauled, our main staircase has been refinished and repaired, signage has been updated, touchless fixtures have replaced old hardware, and every inch of ODC has been lovingly, painstakingly cleaned and refurbished.
