Preparing to host events safely

University events

While certain events may take place on campus, remote or virtual options will be encouraged where feasible. During periods of high risk of transmission, in-person, indoor events may be limited. Attendees at any sanctioned indoor university event, including athletic events, must adhere to mask requirements, and efforts should be made to allow for social distancing.

Student-hosted events and activities

Remote or virtual events continue to be recommended for student-sponsored events or gatherings. Student events are otherwise subject to the same policies outlined for university events. Any gathering on Greek Row must be specifically approved by the Vice President for Student Affairs.

Masks required indoors

Face-coverings will continue to be required indoors on campus unless you are alone in your office or room, or while actively eating or drinking. Masks must be worn as recommended, fitting snugly against the face and completely covering your nose and mouth. Additionally, you may consider N95 or KN95 masks, which offer higher levels of protection. These masks are now more widely available than they were at earlier stages of the pandemic.

In addition to proper mask-wearing and vaccination, there are many other ways to mitigate COVID-19 spread. The CDC continues to recommend that you:

  • Avoid large crowds
  • Wash your hands regularly
  • Stay aware of COVID-19 symptoms and monitor your health daily
