How GVTV is addressing the COVID-19 Pandemic

GVTV is committed to providing a safe, quality experience for members during the COVID-19 Pandemic. In order to honor this commitment and abide by GVSU's COVID Policies:

UPDATED 2021-2022 RULES 

  • Meetings: In-person meetings (of 5 people or more) are now allowed, provided an E-board member uses the Event Pass check-in tool. If necessary, meetings may be held virtually on Zoom.

  • Maximum # of Students allowed in GVTV spaces:

    • No more than 4 students will be allowed in Room 0004 of Kirkhof Center, also known as the GVTV Office or GVTV Control Room. 

    • No more than 4 students will be allowed in Room 0005 of Kirkhof Center, also known as the GVTV Studio.  

  • Mask Policy: Masks are required at all times indoors during GVTV meetings regardless of vaccination status, except when talent is performing on air or being recorded.

    • Failure to comply with this policy will result in the following consequences: ​

      • First time without a mask: a warning ​

      • Second time without a mask: 2-week suspension from all GVTV activities 

      • Third time without a mask: semester-long suspension from all GVTV activities 

  • Social Distancing: GVSU encourages social distancing but no longer defines it as staying 6ft apart. For GVTV, students should stay 3-6ft apart whenever possible and should avoid prolonged contact within 6ft. 

  • Equipment Training: We will continue a policy of attempting to hold training virtually if possible - or in-person training with social distancing and masks on, if it is deemed necessary. 

  • Equipment check-in: includes sanitation of gear by equipment manager or designee (before it goes back in storage cabinet).
