In-person events at BYU canceled

University Communications sent an email Monday morning announcing more COVID-19 restrictions are being put in place campus-wide, including the cancellation of all in-person events on campus.

The email followed Governor Gary Herbert’s emergency announcement late Sunday night. Exceptions to event cancellations include classes before Thanksgiving and intercollegiate sports, following testing and distancing guidelines.

“This also applies to tomorrow’s devotional with Elder Quentin L. Cook, which will now only be delivered remotely,” the announcement said. The devotional was previously scheduled to allow limited in-person attendance. A link to tickets was sent out to the campus community Monday morning by BYU Advancement Vice President, Keith Vorkink, but the link no longer allows seat reservations.

Any events that were previously planned will now need to be re-approved through the correct channels or delivered remotely.
