We are pleased to offer an in-person Family Weekend, and we do so as we navigate the continued impact of COVID-19 and our ability to safely host large events. All campus visitors are expected to follow the University’s public health and safety precautions and guidelines, as outlined on our Safe Return to Campus website at Before arriving to campus, you should complete your status check with the Mason COVID Health✓™. Masks are required for all indoor events and programs during Family Weekend on October 15-17, 2021. Attendees are required to wear a properly fitting mask over their nose and mouth. This is to safeguard your health and the health of all family members, especially our younger Patriots and other vulnerable populations. Family Weekend attendees are permitted to remove their mask indoors only when eating or drinking. Read more.
