Coronavirus: Policies, Procedures, & Information

BGSU Updated Health and Safety Protocols Implemented at the Slater Family Ice Arena

Recently the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) updated their COVID-19 protocols and recommendations.

On June 2, BGSU will make several changes to our current health and safety protocols, following relaxed statewide regulations that encourage businesses and schools to make their own decisions about how to best keep their students, employees and customers safe.

These changes include:
  • Fully vaccinated individuals will no longer be required to wear face coverings outdoors while on BGSU campuses;
  • Fully vaccinated individuals will no longer be required to wear face coverings indoors, unless they are in a group setting of 10 or more individuals, while on BGSU campuses;
    • This includes Locker Rooms, meeting spaces, lounge spaces, etc. within the Ice Arena
  • Unvaccinated individuals should wear face coverings whenever they are around others on campus, both indoors and outdoors.
    • It is recommended that kids 11 and under continue to wear masks indoors when not participating in physical activity and when they can't distance from others outside of their household.
  • Face coverings not required during physical activity
