COVID-19 Event Guidelines

COVID-19 Event Guidelines (updated 9/21/2021)

The health and safety of the UNL community and visitors are our primary concern. The University of Nebraska has developed event guidelines to reinforce key elements of the university’s safety and risk mitigation efforts. Following the recommendation of local health officials, UNL has also developed special guidelines for youth events. Please review the most current guidelines below prior to submitting a Request for Service. These plans may change as we continue to monitor and respond to additional guidance from the appropriate authorities. Conference Services will host a town hall in early spring to go over COVID-19 event guidelines and answer any questions that you may have.

Conference Services expects that the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department will require some extra guidelines for all events residing in the residence halls and utilizing dining services. Since we cannot accurately predict the specific guidelines that will be in effect over the summer, we will wait until early spring to release any Conference Services specific event guidelines. Here are some of the general guidelines we expect for all events:

  • Face covering policy/expectation
  • Frequent hand washing/sanitizing by all attendees
  • Daily symptoms screening
  • Anyone with one or more symptoms or a positive test result must not participate in the event
  • 6' of physical distancing should be maintained by everyone who is not fully vaccinated
  • Bedroom occupancy limited to one or two people. Triples may not be available

For a complete list of the event guidelines that were in effect for summer 2021, please download the pdf below. These guidelines are only to used as a reference. Summer 2022 COVID-19 guidelines specific to Conference Services events will be released in early March.
