As a reminder, Saratoga County’s COVID-19 Community Level remains “Low,” according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and indoor masking is no longer required on campus, as indicated in a June 17 email to the Skidmore community. Should the Community Level return to “High,” the College will revisit these guidelines and provide a timely update to the community.
