University organizations may offer in-person programming and third-party events may be held in university spaces as long as state, local and university protocols are followed to protect all involved. Note that all protocols are subject to change based on health guidance. Complete a campus event request form to schedule your event.

    Before an event, ask all attendees to perform a health assessment by answering the following questions. Advise to stay home if they answer yes to any:

    • Are you sick?
    • Is your temperature above 100.4 F?
    • Do you have COVID-19 symptoms? Including:
      • Fever or chills • Cough • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing • Fatigue • Muscle or body aches • Headache • New loss of taste or smell • Sore throat • Congestion or runny nose • Nausea or vomiting • Diarrhea
    • Have you had contact with someone who has tested positive?

    All scheduled events and activities on campus must adhere to Ohio Department of Health, city and county guidelines, as well as university requirements.


    Face coverings are recommended for individuals when inside a building, regardless of vaccination status. Individuals are expected to make the best decision for themselves on whether or not to continue masking.


    Currently there is no required reduction in event or venue capacity, although organizations may choose to adjust attendance to accommodate physical distancing.


    Currently there is no restriction on food being served at your event/activity as long as your organization is complying with university and building policy.


    Please reach out to University Events if you would like assistance in planning your event in the safest, most accommodating way possible. Email jmleviseur@ysu or call 330-941-2136.

    We encourage outdoor or virtual events when possible, but can help you plan an indoor event with safe alternatives including:

    •   Developing a space and event plan that allows you to spread out. This might involve presenting the program twice to reduce the audience to 50% per presentation or spreading the event across multiple spaces.
    •   Having staggered check in times.
    •   Requiring free tickets to ensure you don't exceed comfortable capacity.
    •   Reducing food options or choosing grab and go items.
    •   Making sanitizer, masks, cleaning products readily available.

    We will continue to monitor CDC, state, and local health department guidance. Changes in university policy and guidance will be updated as needed. The COVID-19 pandemic remains a fluid situation.
