EHS COVID-19 Information

Yale Environmental Health and Safety is working in partnership with Yale Health, the Office of Emergency Management, the Office of Facilities among others to help keep the Yale community healthy and safe.

Tent Use

  • Avoid tents with more than two sides.
  • All tents and heating must meet building and fire codes. 
  • Please complete a Facilities Service Request to request a tent and provide a COA.   
  • Tents are not designed to withstand high winds and winter weather. Prior to installation, all tents must have a management plan based on the design (known wind rating and snow loading) which, at a minimum, identifies who is responsible for continuously monitoring the weather and who will remove the tent when required. This management plan must be provided to Facilities prior to installation.
  • See Yale’s Events, Gatherings, and Meetings Guidance for more.
