COVID Alert: Yellow - Changes for Student Clubs & Organizations

11/1/2020

The RIT COVID Alert Level is still Yellow

This means that the prevalence of the COVID-19 virus is low, but indicators show potential for an increase in transmission. Modified protocols and expectations for in-person events will help to keep our community safe against the spread of COVID-19.

In light of the information shared by Dr. Munson's update Friday evening, the following changes have been made to club activity guidelines and the highlighted activities are suspended effective immediately:

  • All off-campus events and activities are not permitted and these reservations will be canceled by the Student Events Management team.
  • Non-academic indoor in-person events, meetings and activities are now limited to 10 people which includes event organizers and staff.
  • Outdoor events will continue to adhere to the 50 percent capacity limit and will require participants to wear a mask and maintain six feet of physical distancing.
  • Activities that are athletic in nature (dancing, volleyball, Frisbee, paintball, etc.) are not permitted and will be canceled for the next 10 days. This includes in-person practices, rehearsals, and activities.
  • Attendance must be tracked for all student club and organization in-person events using the event on your CampusGroups page.
  • Clubs and organizations are still able and encouraged to socialize and interact virtually.
