University policy on organized off-campus events during COVID-19 pandemic

Aug. 28, 2020, 7:00 AM

Informal meetups of members of the Vanderbilt community, whether on or off campus, are limited to 10 or fewer people, and all individuals must be physically distanced and masked at all times.

A student, as an individual, may attend, participate in or engage with an off-campus service, activity or event that is not hosted, managed, organized or sponsored by Vanderbilt University or Vanderbilt community members. While attending, participating in or engaging with such services, activities or events, Vanderbilt community members are required to follow Vanderbilt University safety and gathering protocols—including masking and physical distancing from others.

This means that if several members of the Vanderbilt community attend the same service, activity or event in the greater Nashville community, they must not congregate in a masked, physically distanced group larger than 10.
