Update: Important Announcement Regarding Events on Campus

 

An internal seated event will be set-up to allow 10 percent of the expected attendance to accommodate physical distancing for unvaccinated individuals.

External events can decide if distanced seating is necessary. This will be determined between the external organization and the Events office.

As COVID-19 infections increase in our region, especially the prevalence of the Delta variant, effective immediately, our university again will require all individuals on our campus to wear masks indoors, regardless of vaccination status. Review more information on the Mask Policy

All on-campus events must still follow certain requirements:

  1. All events and gatherings managers must request space in compliance with University Policy 1103 (Space Utilization and Scheduling).
  2. Participants must complete Mason COVID Health✓™ and receive a “green light” status on the day of the event. Event organizers must perform a spot check of 20 percent of attendees to verify a green status during check-in.
  3. Entrances and exits must be configured to reduce bottlenecks.
  4. Events cannot be open to the general public.* RSVPs are required for all events, and organizers should check in the participants and keep records of attendees/no-shows.
  5. If food is being served, you must follow our Dining guidelines.

*General public is defined as anyone who is not a current Mason faculty, staff, or student and has not registered for an event.

To reschedule or edit a current reservation at the SciTech Campus, email eventsst@gmu.edu.
