General Information About Campus Events and COVID-19 Guidelines

Anyone coming to campus (i.e. admissions tours, employees, residential students, commuter, visitor, event attendee, etc.) must complete the Stockton Daily Health Pledge posted in the Stockton Go Portal or through the guest registration process.

Considerations include but are not limited to:

  1. A face covering over the nose and mouth must be properly worn at all times when attending or working events.
  2. Individuals must adhere to posted signage regarding room capacities and traffic patterns.
  3. Event spaces will be sanitized/disinfected according to established University protocols and will include sanitization/disinfection between events. 
  4. Room layouts must be designed with physical distancing measures that meet or exceed the Center for Disease Control’s (CDCs) 6ft radius per person and not exceed the state mandates on maximum room capacities. Click here for a list of locations with COVID-19 Modified Capacities with 6ft. Spacing. 
  5. Student Clubs and Organizations should visit the Student Development Club and Organization COVID-19 Information page for additional information.
  6. At this time, external community visits are limited to essential visitors only

Event Planning Considerations:

  • Event logistics must comply with all applicable University and state guidelines. Additionally, groups should continually assess current guidance recommendations developed by the University, Office of the Governor, the Office of the Secretary of Higher Education, the State’s High Education Restart Advisory Group, and the Centers for Disease Control for determination of hosting the event.
  • Offer a pre-registration and/or on-site check-in process to obtain participant information for contact tracing.
  • Designate specific facility entrances and exits when possible to eliminate potential crowding/congestion.
  • Begin events with public health and safety-related announcements to inform attendees of the current guidelines.
  • Utilize the sanitizing/disinfecting supplies provided to wipe down furniture and shared equipment. Report any Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) concerns to the Office of Facilities Management and Plant Operations at (609) 652-4221.
  • Consumption of food and beverages is limited to designated areas. Groups should work with Chartwells Dining Services, the Office of Event Services and Campus Center Operations, and/or the Office of Risk Management to ensure safety protocols are followed.
  • Offer a virtual option for those who are unable to or don’t feel comfortable attending in-person.
  • Encourage external guest speakers and/or performers to attend virtually.
  • Distribute materials electronically to reduce handling.
  • Prepare a contingency plan that includes possible cancellation notices, pivoting to a virtual/online event, modifying hours/duration, and/or modifying capacities.

Some events and meetings have converted to online/virtual and are listed in the Campus Calendar. Contact the Office of Event Services and Campus Center Operations at event.services@stockton.edu with questions.
