WOODSTOCK — The Woodstock Village Board of Trustees has voted to follow state guidelines about mask wearing, easing a requirement that masks be worn when people are outside in public in the Village.

However, the board said attending events outside remains an exception to the rule, so masks must continue to be worn when there are large gatherings, such as the Market on the Green, according to a notice from Woodstock town and village administrative assistant Nikki Nourse.

Dartmouth opening up events

Dartmouth College plans to open up its campus in the coming months as it moves from its current “limited access” status to a “full access” phase beginning Aug. 1, college officials said in an online “community conversation” this week.

Provost Joseph Helble said that while some social distancing and mask requirements may remain in place, over the summer laboratories and other facilities will gradually “return to full capacity in advance” of the expected full return of students for the fall semester, according to an announcement on the Dartmouth website.

New activities being offered during spring term include a “Live@Collis concert” at 5 p.m. Friday, featuring New England singer-songwriters Cole Davidson and Pete Kilpatrick; a nine-hole disc golf course open on the front nine at the former Hanover Country Club course; and free rentals of canoes, kayaks and paddleboards at the Ledyard Canoe Club for people with Dartmouth ID.
