Title: Additional Details on Temporary Limitations on Events, Gatherings and Meetings

Dear Members of the Georgetown Community,

To support our efforts to maintain a safe and healthy environment for resuming in-person learning, we wanted to share additional details on the temporary limitations on campus events, gatherings and meetings through January 30, 2022.

  • Events: All university events must be held virtually or outdoors, with limited exceptions explicitly approved by university leadership.
  • Meetings: We encourage any meeting that includes Georgetown students, faculty or staff to be held virtually. Meetings may also be held outside or in one of the tents on the Main Campus so long as six feet of distance is maintained, masks are worn at all times and there is no eating or drinking.
  • Booster Requirement: Georgetown requires all faculty, staff, students, and visitors to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and, effective January 21, 2022, to have received a COVID-19 vaccine booster shot when eligible, or to have an approved medical or religious exemption.
  • Event/Meeting Reporting: Please share information about your event with the Public Health team so they can provide additional tailored guidance.

You can find additional information on the Events and Visitors section of the COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions page.

At this time, we hope to resume in-person classes and many events and meetings beginning on January 31, 2022, if campus and local public health conditions permit.  It is possible some larger in-person events may continue to be held virtually beyond January 31, 2022, even as we return to in-person learning. A university update will be provided as soon as conditions permit.

Thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate this current surge of the pandemic together.
