THON Weekend 2023 COVID-19 Safety Protocols
by Lily Pevoto

To protect the health of our Four Diamonds families and prevent the spread of COVID-19 and all respiratory viruses, we urge individuals not to attend THON Weekend if they have any flu-like symptoms; including but not limited to fever, cough, runny nose, sneezing, etc. Individuals with visible symptoms upon arrival will not be able to attend.

In addition, we highly encourage all attendants to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and influenza. These immunizations are another way for us to protect the health and wellbeing of the children, teens, and families who remain at the center of THON’s mission. Individuals are welcome to wear masks as an additional precaution in the prevention of COVID-19 and respiratory viruses.

These decisions were made in consultation with Penn State Health Children’s Hospital leadership and physicians to ensure that the health of children and families is protected above all. These precautions are subject to change based on the status of COVID-19 and respiratory virus as we approach the event.
