Despite the recent CDC guidance and the state of Massachusetts loosening the wearing of masks outside, Curry College will continue to enforce the mask mandate, both outside and inside, according to an email from college officials. This will be in effect for the remainder of the Spring semester.

Massachusetts will allow people to take off their masks outside starting Friday April 30th. Masks must still be worn inside buildings and will also be required at outside venues like sports stadiums.

Here is the full statement from the college:

Dear Members of the Curry College Community,

Effective Friday, April 30, Massachusetts’s mandatory policy on masks in outdoor public settings will lift.  The state will no longer require residents to wear masks when they are outdoors in most public spaces and able to physically distance from others.

Curry College has determined that the safest path forward for our community is to adhere to our current campus policies and operations now and through the end of the spring semester. Masks will still be required to be worn at all times in both indoor as well as all outdoor settings. The college will continue to monitor guidelines and develop recommendations on best practices going forward as each of us continues to do our part to protect the health and safety of our community.
