Health & Safety Consideration for the Extravaganza

We look forward to welcoming MTD supporters back to campus for this annual event. We are keenly aware that in several areas of the state COVID-19 cases continue to be on the rise, and we are actively monitoring all campus, state, and CDC guidelines related to hosting an event in Manhattan. Guests will be required to adhere to the university’s COVID-19 health and safety protocols. Here are a few things you can expect at the Extravaganza.

  • Wear a mask when not eating or drinking. The Manhattan campus has implemented a temporary face mask requirement.
  • Social distance. The Grand Ballroom is large enough to allow attendees and performers to spread out to their level of comfort and we encourage guests to make use of the ample space. We will make table assignments based on your reservations.
  • Learn about university protocols related to cleaning, food service, and gatherings.
  • Please follow stay-at-home guidelines if you have any symptoms of COVID-19 in the days leading up to the Extravaganza.
