COVID Guidelines & Policies

To ensure the health and safety of the Bearcat community, we have established attendee guidelines to review before you arrive at this event. 

  • All attendees will be required to complete a COVID symptom assessment form or download our COVID check app prior to their arrival. Please be prepared to bring your results with you. All your answers to these questions on the paper form must be negative or you must receive the status “Clear for Campus” in the app in order to participate in this event. If a guest does not have this upon arrival, they will be expected to complete the paper form when they arrive.
  • Each attendee's temperature will be taken upon check in.
  • All attendees are required to wear a face covering for the duration of the event. If you do not have a mask, our staff will provide one. Failure to wear a mask will result in attendees being asked to leave. 
  • Gloves will be provided upon request to help attendees feel more comfortable. 
  • Social distance (six feet) will be required – please follow any tape guidelines where placed on the ground.
  • Only pre-registered guests will be able to access this event, as there is a maximum number of guests and staff who can participate.
  • Due to space and social distancing guidelines, the event is only during the one-hour designated time slot selected during registration.
  • If the Ohio government declares the county where the campus resides (Hamilton County) has reached purple status, all in-person offerings will be cancelled for at least two weeks. In-person offerings will resume when the county is no longer purple. 
  • If University, local, state, and/or national administration announces a shelter in place/stay at home order, then all events will be canceled until allowed to re-open. 

Please note that as federal, state, local, and university guidelines related to COVID-19 continue to shift, opportunities and visitor expectations may shift. Always refer to the most recent communication from the University of Cincinnati for updated guidelines and information.
