COVID-19 Policies for Summer 2024

As of February 2024; subject to change

Your attendance at this or any such week-long group gathering, where people live, play, and eat together, carries with it the risk of your contracting COVID-19 or other contagious illnesses. Please weigh this risk carefully given your own personal situation.

Our goal is for everyone to arrive without COVID-19 or other contagious illnesses and return home without them, while allowing us to have a wonderful week together. We will adjust these policies as necessary to respond to any changes in the public health situation, the campus situation, or CDC guidelines.

  • Please do not attend the workshop if you have any symptoms related to COVID-19 or any other contagious illness. We recommend avoiding high-risk situations in the week prior to the workshop and self-testing twice for COVID-19 during the week prior to your arrival.

  • Masking will be optional, in an atmosphere of mutual respect. While we do not anticipate a change in this policy, we reserve the right to require masking if we feel the situation warrants it. If you are unwilling to mask in such a situation, please do not apply for attendance this year.

  • We will continue to offer and encourage as much outdoor socializing and eating opportunities as possible. While we will work with the university to secure a somewhat separate dining area for our group, if possible, please be aware that we will be sharing campus dining hall facilities with many other groups on campus. We highly advise masking in and around the dining hall when you are not seated for eating. 

In the event that one or more people contract COVID-19 or other contagious illnesses during the workshop week, those individuals will likely need to return home (as determined by Play Week management). Play Week directors will then determine the best course of action, in consultation with their trusted advisors. These actions may include (but are not limited to) closing the workshop early and sending all participants home--something not done lightly and only if deemed absolutely necessary. This decision is solely the prerogative of the directors of Play Week. 

We will provide further guidance as necessary as the workshop dates approach.
