As a proactive measure in the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s efforts to prevent the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) within the university and Omaha communities, we have issued the following guidance for events and meetings:
On and off-campus university sponsored events that involve more than 20 people, or use more than one-third of the venue’s capacity, must be postponed or cancelled effective immediately through the end of the Spring 2020 semester. University-sponsored events that do not meet this threshold are able to continue or cancel events at the organizer’s discretion unless notified otherwise by university officials.
All exceptions will be reviewed and considered at the vice chancellor level.
In-person meetings, particularly of large groups, are discouraged and should be postponed or held remotely or online as an alternative as soon as possible.
University leadership meets daily to assess the evolving coronavirus situation with county, state and federal health officials, and will continue to do so as long as coronavirus poses a health risk to the university community. As such, we will continue to evaluate this policy.
We thank you for your attention and patience during this difficult time.
We will continue to monitor the situation and provide timely updates as we develop policies and procedures that keep the Maverick community healthy, safe and on track with your individual academic and professional journey. You can find the latest information, resources announcements on the university’s Coronavirus Updates page, which is updated daily at 9 A.M.
