COVID-19 Updates & Reminders

Phase 3 (Sept. 28) – In-person functions resume with maximum capacity up to 50 people (if space permits). Social distancing and masks will be expected. Attendance will need to be tracked via UW Connect attendance tracker for contact tracing purposes. More details and guidelines will be released as we get closer to Phase 3. Any in-person events with 20 people or more anticipated to attend needs to be registered as an event through UWConnect. Event registration is due at least 2 weeks prior to the event occurring 

Phase 4 (begins Nov. 23) – Move back to virtual functions only. We are trying to stay on top of the changing times. If you have questions about future activities and planning something during phase 3, please email and we will work with your organization on an individual basis. 

No Off-Campus Exceptions – If you are gathering as a chapter, these expectations are applicable to BOTH on-campus and off-campus gatherings because you are gathering as your organization which is affiliated with the University (similar to if you were traveling for your chapter, you would be representing the University of Wyoming in that space at that time). Questions about the phased re-opening can be sent to  

Reducing Spread – Masks, physical distancing, and handwashing/hand-sanitizing are the key to reducing the spread of this virus. Practicing these things now will increase the likelihood of in-person events actually taking placePLEASE do your part to wear your mask in ANY public setting, on or off-campus, wash your hands regularly, and maintain physical distance of 6ft or more between people you are not regularly with.
