It is important for all of us to do our part to minimize the spread of COVID-19. An important part of working to keep our community safe is by wearing a face-covering. While attending a Dawg Daze event we ask all attendees to wear a face-covering when indoors or outdoors, regardless of vaccination status. If you do not have a face covering, we ask that you leave the event immediately. If you need a face-covering please email email@example.com or visit MGH 120. (updated 9/8/21)
