Can individual units institute more strict public health requirements for in-person operations or events/gatherings?

Local units may establish more restrictive policies as deemed appropriate, such as increasing the distance for physical distancing requirements or decreasing the population density within individual spaces, events, or other in-person activities. It is important to note that under the direction of UW System, campus and underlying units do not have the authority to require in-person attendees to be vaccinated.

Some spaces on campus, as well as events or activities, may require a green Badger Badge/building access granted status to enter or participate.  Guests and visitors, who are not members of the campus community and cannot use the Safer Badgers app will not have access to any specific spaces, events, or other in-person activities that require a green Badger Badge for access.
