Changes to Masking Requirements at the Stadium
Dear Students, Faculty, Staff and Families:
Last week, Syracuse University transitioned to level “Blue” on our campus masking framework. At the time, we announced masks would continue to be required during events at our stadium until further notice. After reviewing pandemic conditions over the last several days—both on campus and throughout our region—and following consultation with public health officials and other large venue operators across New York state, we are revising masking requirements for all events held at the stadium.
Effective, Wednesday, March 2, masks will no longer be required for stadium visitors who have been fully vaccinated. Individuals who are vaccine-exempt or who have not yet been fully vaccinated must continue to wear masks, except when actively eating or drinking. In addition, the following guidelines remain in effect:
- All fans 5 years and older will have to show proof of full vaccination or proof of a recent negative COVID-19 test to enter the stadium.
- Newborns to age 4 do not require a vaccination or a test result to enter the facility.
Masks will continue to be required at the Stadium Testing Center. It is possible that some performers scheduled to appear at the stadium in the future may require attendees to be masked, and we will communicate those requirements on a case-by-case basis.
This action represents the latest step in the University’s ongoing efforts to transition its public health strategy from pandemic to endemic disease response. We will continue monitoring public health conditions and share additional action as necessary.
We appreciate the continued support of our campus community, fans and visitors and your attention to our public health guidelines. To learn more about the University’s COVID response, please visit Syracuse.edu/staysafe and to review the stadium public health protocols, visit Cuse.com.
