Gatherings on Campus (Outside the Classrooms)
All in-person events and gatherings on Hilbert premises will adhere to New York State guidelines and the Cluster Action Initiative. The health and safety of all Hilbert College community members and the surrounding area are paramount. All Hilbert College events need pre-approval of a Senior Staff-level official prior to any significant planning or reservations taking place. Senior Staff approved on-campus events that would normally be open to the public may only be open to students, faculty, staff and approved visitors and guests.
Under COVID, Hilbert College is defining an event as any gathering of more than 10 people in one indoor or outdoor space that is not part of a class, work, or course-related activity, and that is organized by an academic or administrative department or student organization.
Any in-person campus events and gatherings will require all non-Hilbert personnel to be COVID Screened, visitor registered and temperature taken prior to being admitted.
College-sponsored gatherings will adhere to NYS group-size limits (currently less than 50 people, and no more than 25% of maximum occupancy for indoor or no more than 33% of the maximum occupancy for outdoor), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and New York State guidelines.
Department and employee gatherings may be held that adhere to NYS group-size limits (currently less than 50 people, and no more than 25% of maximum occupancy for indoor) and CDC and NYS guidelines.
For all in-person events and gatherings, Hilbert College campus community members are expected to practice personal prevention: hand washing or sanitizing, staying home when sick, wearing a mask, and maintaining 6-feet of physical distance.
For Spring 2021, most events and gatherings will be limited to Hilbert College community members and vendors who directly supply or support events. All special event gatherings must be approved by the Hilbert College Senior Staff VP overseeing the event.
Event and Gathering Classifications
The risk of COVID-19 spreading at events and gatherings increases as follows:
Lowest risk: Virtual-only activities, events, and gatherings.
More risk: Smaller outdoor and in-person gatherings in which individuals from different households remain spaced at least 6 feet apart, wear masks, do not share objects, and come from the same local area (e.g., community, town, city, or county).
Higher risk: Medium-sized in-person gatherings that are adapted to allow individuals to remain spaced at least 6 feet apart and with attendees coming from outside the local area.
Highest risk: Large in-person gatherings where it is difficult for individuals to remain spaced at least 6 feet apart and attendees travel from outside the local area.
Student Organization Fundraising
- Registered student organizations interested in hosting in-person fundraisers must adhere to these procedures and guidelines.
- Student organization fundraisers should utilize electronic money exchange.
