While RPI faculty, staff and students who are fully compliant with the Institute’s COVID-19 protocols will be allowed to attend games, the general public is not. Therefore, at this point, we will not be processing season ticket applications or individual game ticket sales to any non-campus community members. An exception may be for the “approved special events”, though we need to gain clarification and specifics on that.

I'm sorry to hear this. What a kick in the gut!!

In Cornell's case, I would hope that "approved special events" would be the Harvard @ CU game and maybe playoffs.

wonder if cornell goes that route as well. it would cut down on a huge number of townies.. was talking with some of the people working in the building about how the new policy likely means twice a week testing for the year.

Football tickets are on sale, and there's no mention of any covid restrictions -- I assume because it is outdoors and the average home football crowd is already sufficiently socially distanced.

(Also, apparently the top football ticket has a $50 face value? Lol.)

Are you referring to men’s hockey or football? Just clarifying due to the thread drift.

considering cornell just elevated the covid status today, time will tell what happens here.. There is a reason they are still not selling hockey tickets. i wonder what the breakdown of kids/faculty/staff to outside people is for seasons . 600-1000 kids no idea here, but locals make up probably 1/2 the other side.

The email I saw directed to faculty and staff defended the university's current plans to continue in-person classes, etc., arguing that the testing regime is effective in identifying and therefore limiting new cases. Additionally, they stressed that all new cases were either asymptomatic or mild. No faculty or staff tested positive, only students and all positives [or most?] were traced to "informal off-campus gatherings." They will continue to isolate those who test positive.

I get the feeling the administration expects an uptick in cases, since that is the new normal. However, since everyone has to be vaccinated to even be on campus, this situation is radically different than last fall and the administration seems to be more willing to hold back on drastic action.

I’m personally very careful even though vaccinated—I wear masks indoors, won’t do indoor dining, etc. But I’ve been back in the office since I was vaccinated and am meeting with clients, because, you know, life and work does have to continue. It therefore frustrates me to see so many Cornell faculty crying to the University about having to teach in-person classes, notwithstanding the vaccination and masking requirements. Risk can’t be reduced to zero, but these faculty are demanding to teach remotely even though the risk is minuscule under the protocols.

Huge age issue with Faculty too.. I know many of the older or ones with issues do not want to take any risk. yet I do see them out shopping at Wegmans so... You also have a bunch of faculty who dont actually want to teach anyway and want to use this as a way out of being in a class room. The last campus zoom meeting had multiple questions on the risk and basically said the risk from teaching a class was lower than most any other interaction you can have. They are kept away from kids in the rooms, everyone has masks on. They have time to leave without really being around kids and they have offices to stay away from kids as well.

still seeing 1 in 10-20 kids test positive day after day tells you something is going on. what the numbers dont really says is do they continue to test people once they have a positive test. So if a kid has a test on monday and then is positive and isolated do they get tested again on wed or fri and get another positive test so they are in both datasets or do they get removed from the dashboard numbers..

If Cornell is looking to speed faculty turnover, Covid would move things along. Anyway, when you're a student of 19, you cannot tell 45 from 65. Or actually you can but you don't sense any significant difference. Either way, your lips form the words alter kaker.

Actually, we used to call the chairman of our department "Professor Fossil."

I can't imagine many of the students in Chemical Engineering knew the expression alte kaker. I only know of myself and one other ChemE in my class of the proper "background."

at the rate things are going they might reverse course and anyone but the kids might be allowed in the bldg.. they might have to go to daily testing to slow this thing down on campus

That is the best way to go if you want to be safe. The Rapid test is very good for picking up whether you are infectious, or not. If you got a negative test in the AM, right before your first class, you can be pretty sure that you're not an asymptomatic spreader. But the delta multiplies so fast that you need to test at least daily and maybe twice a day, certainly again in the evening if you're going to go out.

Logistically, and cost, it's a much bigger deal, but much better.

With the delta the idea of neg PCR test done 2 days prior to an event is not that helpful. If you were exposed after the test, you could very easily be a spreader. The problem is delta multiplies so fast that you can be infectious 1-2 days after exposure and certainly not yet have symptoms.

Interestingly I went to Springsteen last night and at least 95-98% were wearing a mask, and they came around to tell all to put it on. Knowing that everyone, well of course probably not quite everyone, as there will always be a few cheaters, was vaccinated made me feel okay, but would have felt better if everyone took a Rapid Test before entering.

From the Cornell ticket site:

Cornell Athletics
SPECTATOR POLICIES FOR FALL SPORTS:
Please be prepared to adhere to fan attendance protocols at Cornell. Be aware that this guidance is subject to change.

Indoor Events: All spectators, regardless of vaccination status, are required to wear masks indoors at all times. Masks may be briefly removed when actively eating or drinking. Physical distancing between parties is encouraged if space allows. Please be aware that competing student-athletes and some gameday officials may be unmasked during events as part of their duties.

Outdoor Events: All spectators, regardless of vaccination status, are required to wear masks when 6 ft of physical distancing is not possible (except while eating or drinking). Please note: this requires that masks must be worn upon entry to the facility as spectators will be in close contact with game day staff.

Winter sports spectator guidance has not yet been finalized.
