Campus Events

Are there any restrictions on providing food at events this fall? Are there any event size restrictions?

The only event-specific restriction that may remain is no food in classrooms.

Crowd size limitations have been lifted in Ohio and on campus, so campus no longer has specific 10- or 50-person event caps nor designations around no-contact food service. Those who are not fully vaccinated are responsible for social distancing within any event as well as wearing facial coverings.

The following guidelines are currently in place at all times and in all campus spaces. It’s recommended that those organizing events continue to remember these requirements:

  • Fully vaccinated: Individuals who have been fully vaccinated are no longer required to wear a facial covering or social distance while on campus except, per CDC guidance, on buses, e.g., UC shuttle. Note that individuals are fully vaccinated 14 days after their final dose of vaccine.
  • Unvaccinated: Individuals who have not been fully vaccinated (or otherwise legally exempt) are required  to wear a facial covering and maintain social distancing when indoors except when eating/drinking or alone in a private room or office. Individuals who are not wearing a facial covering are attesting to compliance with this requirement.  

        When outdoors, those who are not fully vaccinated are         required to maintain 6 feet social distancing. Moreover,         unvaccinated individuals are required to wear facial         covering when outdoors and unable to maintain 6 feet of         social distancing.

  • Shared office/work areas: We will currently continue to plan for 6-feet social distancing for all shared office and workspaces where individuals are or may be sharing space for an entire work shift or day; and to space tables in campus eateries and dining facilities as dining opportunities are the most likely inflection points for exposure and spread in the workplace.
