Proof of COVID-19 vaccination or negative COVID-19 test required at BYU public events.
Following the recent rise in local and national COVID-19 cases, BYU will be requiring attendees of indoor public events on campus (athletics, performing arts, conferences and symposiums) to present proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test to gain access to the event venue.
This change will be effective beginning Thursday, January 20, 2022, to allow event staff to adapt to the new safety protocols.
Masks continue to be required at all indoor BYU facilities when physical distancing isn’t maintained regardless of vaccination status. Individuals experiencing symptoms of illness should not attend campus events.
“The safety of our students, faculty, staff and campus guests remains the top priority at BYU,” said President Kevin J Worthen. “These policies will enable us to continue to gather together and share a homecourt advantage, live music, theatre and dance experiences while fulfilling part of our university mission to reflect a loving, genuine concern for the welfare of our neighbor.”
As defined by the CDC, a person is considered fully vaccinated if they can document that at least 14 days have passed since they received the final dose of an FDA-authorized COVID-19 vaccination. Guests under the age of 12 will be permitted to enter the venue without showing proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test.
It is recommended that guests arrive early to allow time for entry screening. On-site COVID-19 testing may be available for large public events at the Marriott Center.
