FAQ: Event Protocols

What is the current guidance related to COVID-19?

Georgetown continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation and respond in support of the University community.

COVID-19 is a serious disease, resulting potentially in illness, hospitalization, and even death. Our first priority is the health and safety of our event participants. In the spirit of cura personalis, the University requires that event participants follow certain health and safety measures, which may vary depending on the nature of the event, in order to help protect the health and safety of all participants. While the University is taking steps to mitigate the risks to event participants, the University cannot guarantee a COVID-19 free environment or eliminate the chance of infection and the health risks associated with it. By participating in this event, you assume the risks involved. You may also be required to leave the event, if you fail to follow the required health and safety measures.

What safety measures will be in place for in-person events?

All events will follow CDC as well as local, state, and venue guidelines for distancing, masking, capacity, and any other public health factors.

The University strongly encourages all attendees for in-person events be vaccinated. However, guests will not be asked about their vaccination status. If potential attendees are experiencing COVID-like symptoms, we strongly encourage them to stay home. It is strongly encouraged that non-vaccinated attendees wear masks at all events and that all attendees, regardless of vaccination status, wear masks indoors.
