Ohio State Game Day

Operations and protocols at athletics facilities will be dramatically altered this year, and important safety messages will continue to be reinforced and communicated. There are a few critical things Buckeye Nation needs to do to support our teams:

  • Make every game a home game by “homegating” safely and responsibly; and  
  • Continuing to wear masks, practice physical distancing and good hand-hygiene.

All Buckeyes are asked to stay vigilant with safety protocols that have been in place since the start of the pandemic – Together As Buckeyes, let’s tackle COVID-19.

Every Game is a Home Game

  • Together As Buckeyes, let’s tackle COVID-19.
  • Every game is a home game.
  • Masks, physical distancing, hand-hygiene and safe “homegating” remain critical.
  • Ohio State’s  safety requirements are based on science and data – and the university is  continuously monitoring to make enhancements to these efforts.
