Unless University policy changes, we will be continuing the same COVID mitigation practices from the Fall term. They are:
All individuals, regardless of vaccination status, must wear a face covering in campus buildings, except while eating or drinking in a designated dining area and when in an enclosed private space (e.g., private study room or private office.)
Non-Pitt individuals who want to attend our in-person talks must send an email in advance to Katie Labuda (email@example.com) requesting Guest Building Access, or you will not be able to enter the Cathedral of Learning.
Lunchtime Talks will take place in person. The speaker as well as the attendees will be masked during the whole talk and Q&A. Contact tracing will be in place and we will ask you to write down your name and email on a sign-in sheet. We will also stream the talks on YouTube livestream, and you will have the option of attending and possibly asking questions through Zoom. Zoom links will be posted to our calendar.
For now, we will not offer food during the talks. To-go snacks will be provided at 11:50am for you to take back to your office and eat before or after the talk. So that the audience can remain masked, there will be no eating during the talk itself.
Lunchtime talks will be on a slightly compacted schedule: Food will be available at 11:50am. The talk will start at 12:10 and end at 1:00pm sharp. Q&A will be from 1:00pm to 1:30pm.
Most Annual Lecture Series talks will be in person, but a few might be on line. Attendees will be masked, and contact tracing in place. In person talks will also be streamed. Zoom links will be posted to our calendar.
Workshops & Conferences will be in person and attendees will be masked.
Several Online Only events will be offered throughout the year, namely The Center Debates series and the Featured Former Fellow Lunchtime Talk. See calendar for details.
These policies may change during the semester in light of the pandemic and Pitt’s guidelines.
