Penn State Campus Rec: Mask Up or We Shut Down

Paul Steinbach Headshot

More than 75 individuals had been asked to leave Penn State Campus Recreation facilities as of Friday, when the department announced it would close its doors if compliance with the university's indoor masking policy doesn't improve.

As reported by the student blog site Onward State, signage and announcements were created to remind facility users of the mask policy, and staff has been going around enforcing it. Campus Rec said it will do “everything that can reasonably be done” to enforce mask-wearing, leaving potential closures as a last resort.

Penn State officials said that while mask-wearing has generally been good across campus, compliance at recreation facilities such as the IM Building, White Building and Hepper Fitness Center, has been below par.
