Main Campus Event
COVID-19 Policy

Updated: 7/7/2021 

 

We are committed to keeping our conference guests safe! As of June 2, 2021, the State of Ohio has lifted all COVID mandates. That said, the Steubenville Conferences will continue to employ certain protocols at our 2021 summer events to promote a great and healthy experience for all our guests. Below is a summary of these procedures. We look forward to serving you!

All conference guests will be required to sign a COVID liability release form as part of the registration process.

Main Venue Capacity
  • Chairs will be aligned to provide ample space between rows amongst our guests.
Lines
  • We ask our guests to be conscientious of others and allow for adequate spacing while standing in line (such as at Confession, meals, restrooms, getting coffee, etc.).
Housing
  • The rooms will be sanitized prior to arrival.
Bathrooms
  • Bathrooms will be sanitized upon arrival at campus and throughout the conference.
Food
  • All food will be handled by qualified food hospitality personnel.
  • Guests should sit in their groups for meals in designated eating areas around campus.
Hygiene
  • Hand sanitizer will be placed at the entrance of every venue, in the lobby of all dorms, and where meals are distributed.
  • Masks are optional.
  • Touchless water refill stations will be available in dorms and at the large conference venue. All guests should bring a personal water bottle. There will be limited common water coolers available. Water at these stations will be dispensed by conference workers.
  • For communal coffee pots in dorms, student workers will make and pour the coffee for attendees. 
Monitoring Symptoms
  • People with COVID-19 have a wide range of symptoms – from being asymptomatic to having mild or severe symptoms. Symptoms may arise 2-14 days after exposure. Loss of taste or smell, congestion, runny nose, fever (over 100.4) or chills, cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle/body aches, sore throat, nausea/vomiting, and/or diarrhea are common symptoms. You can access the CDC’s “Self-Checker” tool here as a guide to help you make decisions regarding seeking care.
  • All conference guests will need to sign a COVID liability release form as part of the registration process.
  • Upon arrival to campus, each guest will provide attestation to questions pertaining to potential COVID symptoms or related exposure.
  • If symptoms arise, the guest should go to EMSIf the individual with symptoms is a youth, he/she needs to be accompanied by an adult.
  • EMS will make an assessment.
  • If symptoms show that a guest may have COVID, he/she needs to go immediately to the nearest COVID testing station to obtain results.
    • An opportunity for testing will exist each conference day, except for Sunday.
    • If symptoms warrant a test, the individual will need to remain in an isolation room until test results are obtained.
    • If a positive test occurs, the individual will either need to leave the conference or enter designated quarantine room on campus for the remainder of the conference.
    • If the individual is a youth, proper communication of the situation will occur to a parent/guardian.
    • Arrangements will be made to ensure all individuals quarantined receive meals and other appropriate hospitality.
