Guide to holding in-person and hybrid events

When indoors, all faculty, staff, students, and visitors – regardless of vaccination status – must remain masked, unless in a private, non-shared space (e.g., office or dorm room) or when eating; physical distancing must be maintained when unmasked. Unvaccinated individuals should continue to wear a mask outdoors when physical distancing is not possible.  This is in accordance with Tompkins County Health Department guidance following a recent increase in positive COVID-19 cases in our surrounding community.

Before submitting an Event Request Form, be sure to check the University Events Team website for current event guidelines.
