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. The Conference 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.
Son pla*** today with several USHL, NAHL, NCAA players home for Christmas. Strong belief some of these leagues will pause or shut down again.
Several area colleges are talking about going virtual for a while.
I fear another massive disruption.
All over the sniffles. What a bunch of bs
Get 3 jabs and still get cancelled. F that
Lots of unhappy coaching staffs in NESCAC due to this ruling. Recruits not returning calls, this will be the end of NESCAC ice hockey for years to come.
The supply/demand ratio is totally in favor of the schools and coaches.
Extra elidgability due to C19.
Conference will rebound… guarantee it.
And yes the shutdown stinks
