Mount Holyoke College, Smith College and Hampshire College have each announced the policy, despite some having prior plans to drop the mandates. Enforced mask mandates have largely disappeared across the country as the COVID-19 pandemic has waned.

Holyoke president Beverly Daniel Tatum wrote in a letter to the student body last month.
