In addition to the changes to the school’s Covid-19 policy, the university is also updating its alcohol policy, resuming sales for fans 21 years and older. All changes will go into effect for the Tigers next home game, a 9 p.m. ET kickoff versus Missouri on Saturday.
“We closely monitored all aspects of game day with the new protocols in place knowing there would be areas for improvement,” said Senior Associate Athletic Director Robert Munson.
While wellness checks are no longer required for entry, fans are still encouraged “to conduct a self-assessment before heading to the game to check for COVID-19 symptoms,” the website notes. Also, those attending games are required to wear a mask while in their seats, as well as while in line for concessions and restrooms. In an effort to further reduce congestion and group gatherings, LSU plans to open additional concession stands throughout Tiger Stadium.
