Update: 7/30/21

The CDC is recommending masks for indoor activities, even for vaccinated persons. Crawford County is an area with high COVID rates. Therefore Allegheny College strongly recommends masks for all. Masks will be available for those who did not pack their own. Those who choose not to mask will not be turned away, but again, masking is strongly recommended to protect the health and safety of all participants.

Please pass this information on to your guests.

Masks will not be required outdoors during the ceremony for vaccinated persons.
