Monroe County Health Department Regulations
In June of 2021, the Monroe County Health Department issued updated Public Health Recommendations for Residential, Communal Living Facilities. These recommendations “are intended and meant to provide helpful and uniform health guidance for these facilities, to reduce the likelihood that these facilities will experience concentrations of COVID-19 such that closure would be required, to prevent conditions likely to contribute to the spread of COVID-19 in Monroe County, and to protect the general public and public health in Monroe County.”
The recommendations provide guidance pertaining to occupancy, shared living and dining facilities, food distribution, shared bathrooms, shared sleeping spaces, laundry facilities, guest policies, quarantine and isolation plans, and record-keeping.
Beginning August 1, 2021, any events on or off-campus with 50 or more people must be approved by the University Event Request Committee. This includes any events hosted at Greek and student organization houses. For the most up to date event and conference guidance, visit the IU Event and Conference COVID Guidance website.
- All student organizations must also follow the 2021-2022 Student Organization and Student Activity Group guidance from the Student Involvement and Leadership Center.
During the 2020-2021 academic year, the Office of Sorority and Fraternity life placed additional restrictions for sororities and fraternities. Those restrictions have been lifted for the upcoming academic year. Sororities and fraternities are expected to follow University Event Guidance for the Fall 2021 semester, OSFL policies and student organization guidance when planning and hosting events.
