COVID-19 Prevention & Response Plan


April 22, 2022

Dear students, faculty and staff,

Renn Fayre 2022 is almost upon us! We are so excited to bring back this tradition after its short hiatus. Our top priority this year is celebrating the end of another tough year and the seniors turning in their theses. We, however, cannot celebrate unless we as a community are safe and healthy. For those who remember Renn Fayre, things might look a little different. For those who haven't been to one, we hope this is a good sample of what classes before us have been able to enjoy. Please read below for all the Renn Fayre information you might need! Stay safe, stay healthy, and see you soon!

COVID-19 restrictions

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we will be taking certain steps to protect the health and safety of attendees this year. These include:

  • Vaccination requirement: You must be up to date on COVID vaccination (or have a college-approved exemption) in order to attend Renn Fayre. If you have already shared your vaccination records with the college (the HCC for students or HR for employees), you don't need to do so again.
  • Testing requirement: You must obtain a negative COVID test result the week leading up to Renn Fayre in order to attend. Next week, surveillance testing will be available Monday-Friday from 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM; if you attend and receive a negative test on one of these days, you don't need to provide any records. If you have reported a positive test result to the college in the last 90 days, you are exempt from this testing requirement.
  • Guest policy: To reduce the risk of COVID transmission, the number of non-Reed guests will be limited this year. Faculty, staff, and students in the Junior class are permitted to bring 1 guest, while Senior students are permitted to bring 2 guests. All guests are required to abide by the COVID requirements and must provide proper documentation during pass sales. Guests should attend pass sales and Renn Fayre with their host.
  • Face coverings: Face coverings are required in all indoor spaces on campus, including during Renn Fayre. In addition, all attendees are encouraged to wear a face covering outdoors while in groups or crowded spaces.

Pass sales

Students, faculty, and staff are eligible to obtain wristbands free of charge. Faculty and staff are also granted one guest wristband free of charge. Alumni wristbands can be purchased for $20 and guest wristbands can be purchased for $25 for the first guest and $30 for the second. Please bring a photo ID with you to pass sales.
