Covid-19 Event Guidelines

Event Guidelines

Revised June 2022

If you’re planning an event, Mason can provide a venue. There are no limits on the number of participants, but organizations must follow our guidelines.  

All on-campus events must still follow certain requirements:

    • All events and gatherings managers must request space in compliance with University Policy 1103 (Space Utilization and Scheduling).
    • Participants are encouraged to complete Mason COVID Health Check and receive a “green light” status on the day of the event. Event organizers must perform a spot check of roughly 20 percent of attendees to verify a green status during check-in.
    • Entrances and exits must be configured to reduce bottlenecks.
Programs, Events, and Camps Serving Minors
