Homecoming COVID-19 Safety Guidelines:
Our community's health and safety are of utmost importance. Following current Thurston County guidelines and our university campus requirements, all Homecoming attendees will be asked to:

  1. Wear masks regardless of vaccination status when not eating or drinking inside any campus facility.

2. Show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 by emailing a photo of vaccination card to alumni@stmartin.edu or be prepared to show vaccination card at event check-in.

If partially vaccinated or not vaccinated, individuals may still attend on-campus Homecoming events but must show proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 48 hours of the event by emailing alumni@stmartin.edu or showing at event check-in. Note: Rapid tests will NOT be provided at the door.
