Event Safety Protocols 

COVID-19 variants remain a persistent threat to individuals' health and available vaccines show significant protection against these variants. It therefore remains important to vaccinate to protect yourself and our community. We expect all eligible campus guests to be fully vaccinated, including vaccine boosters for all eligible individuals prior to coming to campus, barring religious or medical exemption.

Alumni, families, and friends traveling to campus for events will be asked to provide proof of vaccination, proof of recent recovery, or proof of a recent negative COVID-19 test to attend these events. Specific document verification requirements and processes will be provided in advance of the weekend.

All individuals are required to wear a mask indoors on campus, regardless of vaccination status.

Unvaccinated individuals are also expected to wear a face covering in any outdoor setting where physical distancing cannot be maintained. Refer to colgate.edu/colgate-together/masking-guidelines for current campus guidance for face coverings.

Campus guests who are ill (including but not limited to symptoms commonly associated with COVID-19 and other communicable diseases), regardless of vaccination status, must cancel their visit.
