Will ETSU host in-person events this fall?
Fall programs and activities will follow physical distancing, reduced density/attendance and other safety guidelines.
Indoor meetings or gatherings greater than 15 people not associated with academic coursework are prohibited without special exception from the appropriate vice president.
Outdoor gatherings greater than 50 people are prohibited without special exception from the appropriate vice president and approved Event Health Safety Plan.
Very rare exceptions may be made for the following spaces:
- Greene Stadium
- Brooks Gym
- Martha Culp Auditorium (D.P. Culp Student Center)
- Martin Center - Main Hall
- Select outdoor spaces
To apply for an exception, faculty/staff must work with their supervisor to complete and submit an Event Approval Request Form with an Event Health Safety Plan, to Facilities Management at least 14 days prior to the event. Space Use Committee will review and approve the health safety plans.
A policy, called COVID-19 Safeguards for Classes, Gatherings, and Events has been developed and provides a template for completing the health safety plan.
