Washington College is proceeding with a normal varsity spring practice and competition schedule. In addition, club/IM sports will again be permitted. Masks are required for all participants during indoor club/IM activities.
We are following the NCAA’s COVID guidance, as well as any Centennial Conference requirements for the testing of athletes and/or vaccination requirements for coaches and other athletic department staff. At present, unvaccinated student-athletes who are in season are required to participate in additional surveillance testing, over and above what is required of the general student body. Vaccinated students are not required to do so, unless they are symptomatic.
Mask Policy for Student-Athletes
Athletics will be following the NCAA guidelines regarding masking during practices, contests and other team activities. This includes:
- Masking during all team travel, regardless of vaccination status.
- Universal masking and physical distancing for any unvaccinated student-athletes during team meetings or “Other Athletic Activities”, as well as all non-athletic in-person interactions.
- Masking in indoor settings for vaccinated student-athletes during team meetings or “Other Athletic Activities”, as well as masking in indoor settings for all non-athletic in-person interactions.
