  • The latest health and safety guidelines will be shared with vendors before each market and posted on a sign at the welcome table.
  • Campus Planning, Architecture and Sustainability representatives will distribute Protect Purdue signage for each vendor to post at their booths at the beginning of each market.
  • Any staff, vendor or attendee displaying symptoms of COVID-19 will be asked to leave the market.
