COVID-19 Event Guidance and Resources
Due to the worsening spread of COVID-19 in the United States, Governor Northam announced effective Sunday, November 16th, 2020 – all public and private in-person gatherings must be limited to 10 individuals (attendees, volunteers, staff/faculty, participants, etc.). This includes meetings, practices, socials, events, gatherings, etc. in indoor and outdoor settings within Student Engagement and Campus Life managed spaces.
We do not currently know how the gathering limitations will affect Spring 2021 events and will reach out at a later date with Spring Semester guidance.
There will be no penalty or fees if you choose to cancel your reservation. Should you cancel a reservation be part of a series, only dates that have already occurred will be invoiced. Please contact Event Services at 540-231-5005 or email@example.com with any questions or concerns related to the new statewide mandate.
Please review the COVID-19 Event Guidelines for additional information on event requirements. All events must adhere to these requirements in order to occur.
Additionally, while Virginia currently has a 10-person maximum limit on events and gatherings (per Governor Northam’s Phase III guidance), occupancy limits in SECL venues are based on ensuring that six (6) feet of physical distance can be maintained by all event sponsors/hosts, staff/volunteers and attendees. Please see the linked SECL Venue Information document for additional information on capacities and event setups.
Event Services will begin accepting new reservation requests for Student Engagement and Campus Life venues during Spring Semester on January 19th, 2021. Reservation requests can be for events occurring between January 19th, 2021 through May 5th, 2021. New requests for Summer 2021 are not being taken at this time.
