Effective, June 2, 2021:
The University of Wisconsin-Madison’s event attendance and space occupancy limits are reviewed periodically as Public Health Madison Dane County (PHMDC) issues updated public health guidance for gathering and event sizes. Effective June 2, 2021, with the expiration of the most recent PHMDC order, the size of outdoor university affiliated events on or off campus is not limited; however, individuals who are not vaccinated should maintain six (6) feet physical distancing and if physical distancing is not possible, and should wear a face covering. Indoor event size is limited to the maximum allowable to ensure that at least six (6) feet of physical distancing can be maintained by all those attending (vaccinated and unvaccinated) who are not members of the same household/living unit. In addition, individuals who are not vaccinated should wear a face covering, except when eating or drinking.
All previous PHMDC orders may be viewed at PHMDC Current Order.
Rationale/Purpose of the Policy
The following policy for Registered Student Organization (RSO) events is aligned with University of Wisconsin–Madison’s COVID-19 Response which seeks to mitigates risks to our campus community while allowing for necessary activities. This policy may be modified as new information becomes available from national, state and local public health agencies. Local units may establish more restrictive policy as deemed appropriate. The most current University event policy can be found in the UW–Madison Policy Library. Questions about these guidelines may be referred to email@example.com.
** NOTE: All Intercollegiate Athletics events will follow NCAA and Big Ten conference rules and guidelines and all pre-college programming is subject to a separate set of requirements.
This policy applies to the sponsored programs, activities, meetings, or gatherings, regardless of their location on or off university property, of all Registered Student Organizations (hereafter referred to as RSOs). Third party events are permissible under this policy.
