NAU will require masks be worn inside classrooms and labs and when physical distancing can’t be accomplished. The new policy was announced Wednesday. NAU Athletics responded on Thursday saying: “At this time there is nothing specific to NAU athletic venues. We are excited for the fall season and great experiences that come with Lumberjack athletic events. We also recognize the need to remain nimble to support the health and safety of our student athletes, students, and fans.” NAU Athletics announced earlier this year a return to full capacity for football in the Skydome. The first home football game in nearly two seasons is Thursday, September 2nd at home against defending FCS Champion Sam Houston State.
