We are pleased to confirm that we are going forward with in-person reunions this spring! The COVID-19 outlook has greatly improved since our January 25 update, and with it, many of the restrictions we mentioned in the past no longer apply. Here is the latest:
- As of now, there will be no restrictions on tent capacity at reunions.
- Mask wearing must be consistent with Yale policies in effect. If masks are required, there may be rules regarding the type of masks (such as ASTM, N95, KN95). If so, we will have a supply of acceptable masks available. Please be advised that Yale follows the CDC’s masking guidance.
- Vaccinations, including boosters, will be required for all attendees who are eligible. Acceptable vaccines are listed on the Yale Health COVID-19 vaccination page. Attendees will be required to attest to vaccination (including booster) when they register, and those signing up for campus housing may also be required to submit proof online. Everyone should bring their vaccination card or other proof with them to campus.
- Attendees must comply with Yale’s testing policies in effect at the time the reunion.
- Children of all ages will be welcome, provided they are vaccinated and boosted, if eligible. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer childcare (i.e., Camp Bulldog) for this reunion cycle. We have been monitoring staffing shortages, including for daycare, and have concluded that we cannot guarantee staffing at Camp Bulldog while also providing the needed staffing for your class and reunion-wide programs.
We will continue to update you as and if Yale’s guidelines change or evolve. Please check back to the Yale Reunions homepage for the latest information!
