In light of the rapid onset of the highly transmissible Omicron variant, NESCAC institutions will temporarily require that spectators at indoor NESCAC athletic events be restricted to individuals who are part of the host institution’s testing protocol. This policy is in effect until the end of January. We hope that the testing, vaccination, and other mitigation measures in use on all our campuses will allow us to keep case numbers low. NESCAC will review this policy on a regular basis in the hope that conditions will allow us to return to our usual policies on spectators. Updates will be provided as soon as information is available.
All NESCAC institutions also strongly encourage athletes to get a booster before returning to campus.
