Events & On-campus Gatherings
Screening and review of proof of vaccination documents is no longer required at Cornell Tech events. Be aware that requirements may change quickly – impacting your event – if COVID-19 transmission rates increase on campus or within the local community, or in response to local, state, or federal guidelines or requirements. Event organizers are responsible for checking this site frequently and staying informed about changes in requirements.
Event organizers must ensure attendees are aware of all necessary public health guidance and communicate expectations to attendees in advance of the event.
Events may provide food and beverages with the following considerations:
- Choose larger/more spacious venues that allow for spacing while eating/drinking
- Consider ways to serve food that would limit congregating: place food on one side of a space; place tables on the other
- Consider using tables so people are inclined to sit and eat
- Consider grab-and-go options to meet participants’ comfort level with shared food options
Smaller meetings/gatherings on campus may serve food and drink, provided they are single serve pre-packaged offerings.
It is well established that wearing a mask while indoors reduces the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19. Consistent with NYC DOH guidance, it is strongly recommended that masks be worn indoors unless you are the sole occupant in an enclosed space. Specifically, as indoor conditions and individuals’ vulnerabilities vary markedly, we ask event attendees to respect each other’s decision in regards to mask wearing.
