The following changes to “touchdown space” occupancy reflect guidance from the city and state that was announced in late December and updated in early January. These changes will be in place through at least February 1, 2021. We will continue to monitor the state and city guidance and revise plans as needed.

  • Touchdown spaces are available to Covid Pass users who are students and/or campus residents.
  • Capacity has been updated, with all touchdown spaces having maximum occupancy of 10 or fewer individuals. These temporary capacity restrictions will remain in effect through at least February 1, 2021.
