With thousands of Tigers ready to fill up the Eddie G. Rob- inson stadium, Grambling State University announced the new COVID-19 precautions in order to attend games.

Grambling State University will require all guests visiting Ed- die G. Robinson Memorial Stadi- um, 12 years of age and older to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test, which has to be taken within 48 hours or sooner prior to entry.

Patrons younger than 12 will not need to present a negative test. In addition to these new up- dates, fans are being encouraged to keep a distance of 6 feet from other fans.

President Rick Gallot says these are the safest measures to take in order for everyone to en- joy football season. “The measures we take now will help to ensure a safe game day experience. I encourage fans to get vaccinated so we can one day enjoy the festivities in true GramFam fashion.”Gallot said.

Sophomore Taylor Day from Fredericksburg, Virginia, majoring in mass communication, thinks it is a great idea, and the most cautious way to go.“I honestly think it’s the best. It’s the safest way. If we want to safely enjoy ourselves, being vac- cinated is the only way,” Day said.

Senior Deonte Godfrey from Chesapeake, Virginia, majoring in computer science feels everyone
should get the vaccine to continue to attend games and have fun around campus.

“I feel everyone should get the vaccine so we can continue to go to the games and activities outside of football, people should get the vaccine so we can stop the spread of COVID.” Godfrey
