Dear Members of the Curry College Community,   We’re pleased to report that we’re seeing a continued decline in our COVID-19 positivity rates. As a result, we will be able to continue lifting some of the campus restrictions enacted earlier this month.  

Beginning at 5 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 25: The Student Center dining hall will be open for in-person dining but limited to 4 students per table in the main dining area only.   Beginning at 9 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 25: All intramural sports will resume activity but the number of students that can participate will be reduced.  

Beginning Saturday, Feb. 27: All spring athletics teams (baseball, softball, men’s and women’s lacrosse, men’s, and women’s tennis) will begin their regular practice schedules. The off-campus shuttle, Curry Weekender, will resume normal operations beginning at 10 a.m., see full schedule here.  

Beginning Saturday, March 5: Winter athletics teams (men’s and women’s basketball and men’s ice hockey) will begin a limited intercollegiate competition following strict adherence to the established safety procedures and guidelines set by the College, the state and federal government, and NCAA regulations.  

As a reminder, the Fitness Center, Miller Weight Room and Library are also open, and all other social events and activities will continue to be offered as virtual events.   While we are making this shift, I would like to remind us all to continue to adhere to the protocols set forth by the College, both on and off-campus: Wear your masks; wash your hands; keep your distance, and monitor your health. If we become complacent with these protocols and we see a rise in our daily positivity rate, we will again enforce restricted activity on campus.

Please do your part so that we can continue normal campus operations including the resumption of in-person events, and other organized student activities. We have a collective responsibility for the safety of ourselves and others, and I appreciate the vast majority of students who are complying with our health and safety policies.  

Moving forward, we will continue to carefully monitor for any spread of COVID-19 within our community and as needed, we will take swift and decisive action to protect the health and well-being of our students, faculty and staff which is of our foremost concern.   Thank you for your patience and support as we move forward together.
