UPDATED INFORMATION ON FACILITY RESERVATIONS - SPRING 2022

 

Updated Guidance on Indoor Event Capacity: 

Effective January 10, 2022, indoor events and meetings will be limited to 30 people or the fire-code capacity of the space (whichever is a smaller number) at all College-sponsored gatherings (on or off campus) for all non-academic meetings.  

All other requirements for indoor gatherings remain in place as indicated:  

  • Face coverings are required, and social distancing is strongly encouraged.  
  • A non-student employee of the College must be present (in person or virtually) to help manage the event. 
  • Eating and drinking should be very limited. Food should be pre-packaged, and we encourage providing food and drink in a “to-go” format as guests leave the event. 
  • When possible and to minimize direct contact, events/gatherings should not include mingling or reception activities. 
  • Maintain a list of attendees in case follow-up is needed for contact-tracing purposes. 
  • NOTE:  Athletics Facilities and Sottile Theatre will manage their own gathering policies.  
  • Limited exceptions to the indoorpolicy may be considered through completion of the request form.

 Guidance on Outdoor Event Capacity: 

Effective January 10, 2022, gatherings in outdoor spaces should adhere to the fire-code capacity of the space at all College-sponsored gatherings (on or off campus) for all non-academic meetings. All other requirements noted above for indoor gatherings will apply to outdoor gatherings as well and face coverings are strongly encouraged.  

 

Mask Mandate: 

Face masks must be worn inside all campus facilities unless actively eating or drinking. This includes the Stern Center and RITA Hollings Science Center for all meetings and events.
