Party Planning Alcohol Policy/Guidelines
Interim Adjustments for COVID-19
UPDATE September 7, 2021: The most up-to-date guidance on gatherings and parties can be found at https://studentaffairs.stanford.edu/resources-our-communities/covid-19-guidance-students/stanford-student-gatherings-and-parties
Indoor student parties will be prohibited until October 8, 2021, the end of the third week of the fall quarter for most students, to help limit the potential for virus transmission in this period when we are returning on-site. Indoor events such as residence hall meetings will still be allowed, as will private gatherings in a student’s room, suite or apartment with no more than four times the occupancy in attendance.
In addition to the indoor mask requirement already in place, we are strongly recommending masking outdoors in crowded settings when 6 feet of distance from others cannot consistently be maintained. This does not limit your ability to hold outdoor meetings or gatherings; we want our community to take advantage of our outdoor spaces. We do want to work to limit the potential for spread in crowded settings as our community returns in-person. Outdoor events with food are still allowed, and you can lower a face covering to eat – but use good judgment and maintain distance from others when doing so.
