Guidance for COVID-19 Meetings & Events

LAST UPDATED August 16 at 8:20 a.m.

As a result of current public health information available, the following interim guidance has been created regarding meetings and events on the Frostburg State University campus.  This guidance will remain in place until removed and it applies to all previously reserved/scheduled meetings and events, as well as all meetings and events scheduled moving forward. 

All meetings and events on campus will follow applicable guidance from federal, state, and local health officials (CDC, USM, etc.) as well as applicable Executive Orders from Governor Hogan’s office. 

Approval Process:  Requests for in-person meetings and events on campus will be reviewed prior to approval.  The first step in this approval process is to submit a room reservation request through the EMS Web App 

EMS Web App:  The EMS Web App will continue to be the method for requesting space usage on campus and receiving approvals for meetings and events. 

External Guests at Events:  Visitors to campus should continue to verify their health through the COVID Check-In Portal or through posted COVID-19 health verification questions.   Effective July 1, 2021, external guests are also permitted to host contracted events on campus, within the confines of the guidance listed on this webpage.   

Food Service/Catering:  Frostburg Dining will continue to provide catering service within the confines of permitted events on campus.  Most services have resumed at pre-pandemic levels including self-service and buffets.

Large-Scale Events:  Traditional in-person large-scale events are permitted at 100% capacity.  All events will follow guidance from the CDC, USM, and any applicable executive orders. As such, multiple modalities may be employed for event delivery (in-person, online/virtual, and/or a combination of the two). Large-scale events require the completion of a Risk Management plan, as was required pre-pandemic. 

Live Performance Events:  Based on the current executive order, the following guidelines are in place for live performance events, in addition to the other guidelines outlined on this webpage:  

  • All audience members must remain at least 12 feet away from performers if performers will be unmasked.  
  • Consistent with CDC guidance, masks are required when indoors and in the presence of others. 

Masks/Face Coverings:  In accordance with the CDC recommendation, FSU will require masks to be worn indoors when in the presence of others by EVERYONE on campus, regardless of vaccination status, effective August 10, 2021   

Symptom Screening:  All individuals (students, faculty, staff, performers, attendees) will complete the daily COVID Check-In online and monitor their health for symptoms.
