Life on Campus Gathering Policy 2020-2021

What is a Gathering? 

Gathering refers to a group of individuals meeting for a common purpose including faith-based, civic, cultural and other purposes, indoors or outdoors. A gathering does not include an indoor social get-together.

Note: This policy is for non-athletic program gatherings – athletic gatherings have different guidelines.


Face Coverings

All participants in a gathering must wear face coverings.

Gathering Size

All gatherings are limited to a maximum of 100 people outdoors or 50 people indoors.

Determine maximum occupancy of each indoor and outdoor area to maintain the requirement of at least six (6) feet of physical distance between parties, and limit number of individuals accordingly. Use 35 square feet per person as a guide to determine maximum occupancy.

Physical Distancing

All gatherings must maintain physical distancing.

Members of the same party (maximum of 10 people) can participate in activities, stand in line together and do not have to stay six (6) feet apart. A distance of at least six (6) feet must be maintained between parties.

Assign a physical distancing monitor to ensure compliance with all distancing requirements, including at entrances, exits, restrooms and any other area where people may meet or crowd.
