The University of Alabama has extended its moratorium on in-person student-organized events until September 13.

A previous moratorium was implemented two weeks ago in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 on campus.

Dr. Myron Pope, VP for Student Life at UA, said in a statement about the extension of the ban that there are tentative plans in place to consider relaxing some aspects of the rules if The University starts to see a decline in positive cases.

This decision comes just before Labor Day weekend, and Pope's message to students came with a set of suggestions to urge students to stay safe as they travel and celebrate the holiday:

  • Properly wear a mask at all times
  • Practice social distancing
  • Refrain from gathering in large groups (connect with roommates, or a small group of friends, 3-4 people)

The details of the moratorium on events will be continually reevaluated over the next two weeks. For more information as it comes out, stay tuned to the Tuscaloosa Thread.
