Dartmouth College to disband COVID-19 task force by Aug. 1

HANOVER — Dartmouth College plans to end the work of its COVID-19 task force by Aug. 1, as the college prepares to resume normal operations in the fall, according to a news release.

The task force, which formed in 2020 and has guided the college’s pandemic-related decision-making throughout, stopped reviewing or making recommendations for college operations beginning Tuesday.

The task force is expected to be further disbanded over the course of this month, “assuming that public health conditions continue to remain favorable,” Dartmouth President Phil Hanlon said in a Tuesday email to the community.

With the disbanding of the task force, the offices of the provost and the executive vice president will make decisions relating to campuswide restrictions and operations, which are expected to be lifted by late August.

The task force, or parts of it, may be restored depending on the pandemic’s future course.
