Graceland University Art Department Event Protocols Announced

To facilitate guest access to on-campus art events, the art department has put the following guidelines in place. These guidelines will remain in effect until it is determined changes are appropriate with consideration of CDC and Graceland guidance during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In order to minimize the risks and potential exposure of COVID-19 for spectators, students and staff, the following protocols will be implemented.

 

Permitted Attendance Groups

Those who wish to attend fall semester performances will be limited to the restricted capacity for the specific performance venue. Effective Oct. 1, members of the Graceland community, student family members and interested members of the local community will be allowed to attend music performances held on campus. This includes but is not limited to current Graceland University students, faculty and staff, families of Graceland students, alumni, local supporters, as well as donors both from the local community and from elsewhere.

 

Required Protocol For All Events

  • The number of individuals attending art events will be limited to the restricted capacity for the specific event venue.
  • All students, faculty and staff are required to present an active ticket, Graceland ID and daily COVID-19 green screening result at the entrance point for each performance for admission.
  • All other attendees must present a valid state-issued ID and complete the health screening at the entrance point of the event. An adult must accompany minors.Individual health screenings, including a touchless temperature check, will be completed at the designated entrance/checkpoint for all events. All attendees should perform a self-screening prior to traveling to campus. If symptoms are present or if an individual has been directly exposed to COVID-19, they must refrain from attending any events or coming to campus, or they will be asked to immediately leave the facility and the campus. Screening questions are as follows:
    • In the past 14 days, have you been in close contact with a person diagnosed with COVID-19 (within six feet for more than 15 minutes)?
    • Over the past week, have you experienced any of the following:
      • a temperature of 100.4 F?
      • repetitive shaking or chills?
      • cough?
      • shortness of breath?
      • loss of smell or taste?
      • upset stomach?
      • muscle pain?
      • sore throat?
      • headache?
      • congestion?
  • Well-fitted face masks will be required for both indoor and outdoor events. Bammies/gators will NOT be permitted.
  • Social distancing will be strictly enforced.
  • Family units are permitted to sit together if the event is outdoors. (A family unit is considered any persons who reside at the same residence.) Attendees must adhere to predesignated seating for indoor events.
  • There will be no contact with students or faculty prior to or after the event, whether in, on or around Graceland facilities.
  • Everyone in attendance must abide by all facility signage and instructions in relation to COVID-19 policies and procedures.

 

These protocols and guidelines are subject to change as the university’s administration and COVID-19 task forces continue to evaluate COVID-19 policies and best practices.
