What are the public health requirements for in-person youth activities ?

Youth activities and programs on the UW campus are permitted. All programs must follow campus public health guidelines.

Masks may be worn, but are not required, for youth participating in on-campus activities as well as staff serving them while on the UW–Madison campus or in any of its facilities.

Decisions regarding youth participating in youth activities on the UW–Madison campus or in any of its facilities are made in consultation with local public health departments, taking into account Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) COVID-19 by County information.

Vaccinations are the greatest defense against the spread of COVID-19 and we encourage all guests who are 6 months and over to get vaccinated.

All activities involving youth must be registered with the UW–Madison Office of Youth Protection (OYP) to ensure compliance. Reach out to OYP for more information.
