Masks & Vaccination Status

In response to evolving changes brought about by the COVID-19 Delta variant, our University event policies have been recently updated. As we prepare to welcome you to campus, we share a few important reminders:

  • For the safety of all guests and staff, and in order to comply with Santa Clara County public health guidelines, indoor events will require masks for all attendees, both vaccinated and unvaccinated.
  • Masks are also recommended for outdoor events with 100 attendees or more.
  • Masks should be worn at all times when individuals are not actively consuming food or beverage.
  • Unvaccinated individuals must maintain a 6-foot physical distance from others while consuming food or beverage.
  • Anyone refusing to comply with mask requirements is subject to removal from the event.
  • Do not attend an event if you are sick or unwell.
  • Please note we encourage all outside guests or visitors to the University to be fully vaccinated.
  • All current students, faculty, and staff must be in compliance with the vaccination mandate announced by the University (see the Prepared SCU website for additional information and details).
  • If you attend this event and test positive for COVID-19 within 48 hours of attending, please report this to the University by emailing covid19@scu.edu.
  • Students, staff, and faculty who receive a positive test result from an off-campus facility should complete this short form to notify the SCU COVID Support Team.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. We are doing our best to keep our campus community safe and healthy as we celebrate being on campus at long last.
