John Stockton, one of the most celebrated basketball players in history, is barred from attending games at his alma mater, Gonzaga University, because of an unwillingness to comply with the school’s mask mandate.

史上最有名的籃球員之一約翰‧史塔克頓,被禁止出席母校剛薩加大學的賽事,因為他不願意遵守該校的強制戴口罩令。

A spokesperson for Gonzaga University, which is in Spokane, Wash., declined to comment on Stockton specifically, but said in a statement: “Attendees at basketball games are required to wear face masks at all times.”

位於(美國)華盛頓州斯波坎的剛薩加大學的1名發言人,不願特別就史塔克頓的情況發表評論,但透過聲明表示,「籃球賽的出席者必須一直戴著口罩。」

The university reinstituted an indoor mask mandate in August, as the more aggressive Delta variant of Covid-19 was spreading all over the world.

隨著更來勢洶洶的武漢肺炎病毒變異株Delta蔓延全球各地,該校在去年8月重新規定室內強制戴口罩令。
