I looked at the mask policies for football stadiums of Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) institutions which is the top level of football in the United States. 54.8% of FBS universities required masks either indoors or outdoors. The Far West and Mid-East regions had the largest percentage of schools that required masks indoors or outdoors to enter the football stadium while the Southwest had the largest percentage of schools which did not require or encourage mask-wearing in their football stadiums. The mask policy data was found using C2i’s data collection and the geographic data was from IPEDS.
