Vaxxed fans OK’d to attend Panther games

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury College will permit fans who are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 or have a valid medical or religious exemption to attend its home athletic events this fall.

College officials are defining fully vaccinated people as those who have had full doses of approved vaccines, assuming two weeks have passed since they have received their final shots.

Attendees at sporting events are asked to bring their vaccination cards or a photo of the document on their phones.

Fans are also encouraged to wear face masks outdoors when in group settings where physical distancing cannot be maintained and/or prolonged close contact with others is unavoidable.

Face coverings will be required for all those attending indoor athletic events, which this fall means women’s volleyball matches.

The Middlebury College Department of Athletics also announced it will not be providing printed game programs at its events this academic year, a move described in a department press release “as part of our efforts for a more sustainable campus.” The release also noted that most NESCAC schools will be making that switch this fall.

Programs will be available on game days online or via a QR code. According to the press release they “will include the most up-to-date information about each team,” including rosters, schedules and statistics.
