HANOVER, N.H. (WCAX) - Dartmouth College has eased some COVID restrictions on campus as positive cases start to decline.

School officials say there are currently 61 total active COVID cases and that 57 are students and four are faculty or staff.

The school on Monday reopened Dartmouth’s Baker-Berry Library, the alumni gym, fitness center and other buildings for students and employees who are approved to be on campus.

Students should continue to refrain from visiting one another in their rooms or gathering in hallways, officials said. Common spaces and kitchens in residence halls remain closed, and “grab and go” dining is still in effect.

UVM COVID UPDATE

We were waiting for updated numbers after the University of Vermont started twice-weekly testing for students last week.

The most recent numbers from last week found 22 on-campus students tested positive for COVID and nine off-campus students. One staff member also tested positive. About 30 percent of the students who got a positive result were already in quarantine.

The school has been dealing with an uptick in COVID cases since students returned after the winter break.
