Georgetown U. Cancels Homecoming Events

Georgetown University has canceled its homecoming events this year out of “an abundance of caution.”

The university said its decision was based on its own enhanced guidance for on-campus events, including recommendations to limit event size, amid a surge in coronavirus cases fueled by the highly contagious delta variant of the virus.

“In support of these guidelines and out of an abundance of caution, we have made the difficult decision to forego Homecoming Weekend this fall,” the school said in a statement posted on its website. “Please know we remain committed to engaging and celebrating our students and alumni.”

University officials also said it will begin random weekly testing of fully vaccinated students and staff in the coming days. Others on campus who aren’t fully vaccinated will be required to test twice a week.
