Union College athletics requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccination to attend games – The Daily Gazette – The Daily Gazette

SCHENECTADY — The Union College athletic department announced Tuesday that fans 12 years and older attending all indoor collegiate sporting events at Messa Rink, Viniar Athletic Center and Alumni Gym Pool will have to bring proof of full COVID-19 vaccination.

The policy goes into effect Dec. 30, when the women’s basketball team hosts Middlebury. The Union men’s hockey team is hosting UMass Dec. 31 and Jan. 1. The next Union men’s basketball game is Jan. 7 against Skidmore. The men’s and women’s swimming host Hartwick and Springfield Jan. 8. The women’s hockey team returns to Messa Jan. 14 against Princeton.

Accepted forms of proof include the New York State Excelsior Pass or a CDC Vaccination Card (either the physical card or a legible photo of the card). For now, Union is requiring proof of the two doses, not the booster.

For all indoor events, proof of full vaccination will be required for all spectators ages 12 and up. Upon arrival at the facility, all spectators will be asked to present photo identification and documentation of vaccination.

Due to the recent availability of vaccines for younger children, children ages 5-11 must show proof of having had at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccination in order to gain entry into an indoor facility. Children ages 2-5 who remain ineligible for vaccination will be allowed entry, provided they wear a proper-fitting mask at all times.

Spectators must continue to wear masks at all times while inside on-campus facilities.
