Two months in the past, LSU introduced a vaccine mandate for attending residence soccer video games, citing the Delta variant and the necessity to maintain hospitals from turning into “overburdened.” A damaging COVID check inside 72 hours of gameday additionally sufficed below the controversial coverage, which has largely been applied in main Democratic city facilities.
The faculty, nevertheless, reversed course immediately, saying an finish to the coverage altogether. LSU followers will now not want to indicate any type of COVID safety to enter famed Tiger Stadium—no vaccination nor damaging check. The new coverage goes into impact Oct. 16th towards Florida (the Tigers play on the highway tomorrow in Lexington towards a frisky Kentucky crew).
