Students are now allowed to remove their masks when entering and exiting or walking through the hallways of athletic facilities such as the Peter Buck Center for Health and Fitness and when exercising alone in an indoor space. However, students and faculty alike, as well as spectators from outside of the College, are expected to remain masked when in the gymnasium for indoor sporting events.
