In a tweet, Baylor Athletics announced it would not change its protocols and will still require face coverings and reduced capacity.
"As always, the health and well-being of the Baylor Family - our student-athletes, coaches, staff and fans - are of primary importance. We will continue to monitor the ongoing circumstances surrounding COVID-19 and comply with recommendations of the university, Big 12 Conference, and the NCAA," said Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics, Mack Rhoades.
