WHAT ARE THE COVID PROTOCOLS FOR SUMMIT? CUFI on Campus will adhere to state, local, or venue requirements if masks are required for the event. The state of Maryland and our venue do not currently require face coverings, although this is subject to change between now and the event. CUFI on Campus will have masks available for use if needed.
As a reminder, if you are exhibiting signs of sickness, or if you have been exposed to someone who has contracted COVID-19 within the last 10 days we request that you stay home. If you cannot attend due to these reasons, please contact the High School Outreach Coordinator for optional opportunities. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding during this time. We are continually praying for everyone affected by this situation.
