Visitors & Events
Visitors and event attendees should stay home if they feel ill, and are strongly encouraged to take an antigen test in advance of visiting campus or attending an event.
Masks are not required in most spaces on campus; however, they are highly encouraged. It is well established that wearing a high-quality mask while indoors reduces the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19. The choice to wear a mask is a personal one, and no one should be made to feel uncomfortable because of their choice. Masks are required in health care facilities.
The university does not check vaccination status for campus visitors; however, visitors are encouraged to have received a primary COVID-19 vaccine series and be up to date on eligible boosters. Event planners can contact Cornell Campus Public Health Support with questions about current COVID practices.
