LSU football on Tuesday announced new rules regarding those who wish to attend games at Tiger Stadium this fall.

All fans 12 years of age and older will now have to show that they are either vaccinated or have a negative COVID test 3 days before the game.

LSU President William F. Tate IV explained the decision.

“As the flagship institution of the state of Louisiana, our foremost responsibility is to ensure the safety of our students, our supporters, and our community,” Tate said. “While we are aware of the diverse perspectives across the nation regarding masks and vaccinations, we must take all reasonable measures to protect our campus and community, not only on gamedays, but long after guests have left Tiger Stadium. The current threat to our lives, our health, and to our medical systems due to COVID-19 is overburdening our hospitals, and we must do our part to stop the spread.”

The policy will be in effect beginning on Sept. 11th for the game against McNeese State.
