Event Safety Protocols - Updated 9/21/21

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 prior to coming to campus, barring religious or medical exemption.

Alumni, families, and friends traveling to campus for Homecoming events will be asked to provide proof of vaccination, proof of recent recovery, or proof of a recent negative COVID-19 test to attend Homecoming Weekend events. Specific document verification requirements and processes will be provided in your confirmation email.

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 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.
