SUBJECT: UMMC’s Holiday Gathering and Decoration Guidelines
As the Medical Center prepares for the upcoming holiday season, we want to offer a warm and appealing - yet safe - environment for all UMMC patients, visitors and staff.
As an academic medical center, we will comply with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s COVID-19-related safety guidelines. As such, UMMC-associated holiday gatherings, office parties and other social events must comply with our event safety guidelines found here. The requirement to adhere to these guidelines applies whether the event occurs on UMMC-owned or leased property or not. In order for UMMC funds to be used to pay for any part of an event, the COVID-19 Safety Guidelines for UMMC Sponsored Events found here must be met and the request form, which includes a follow-up attestation statement, that is linked on that page must be submitted and approved.
The following rules must be followed for all holiday decorations or displays at the Medical Center.
Thank you for your assistance with keeping UMMC safe during this holiday season.
