Oregon and Oregon State Announce Vaccine Or Negative Test Requirement To Attend Football Games
By  Joe Morgan
EUGENE, OREGON -  As college football season finally gets to within a week of kicking off, there are still many questions that need to be answered. 
The COVID-19 pandemic nearly canceled the 2020 football season for both the Pac-12 and the BIG 10, before both conferences ultimately decided to hold a football schedule. In August 2020, the Pac-12 conference postponed all sports competitions through the end of the calendar year before deciding to hold a shortened football season in September.      While having football games was certainly a morale boost for college football fans everywhere, the lack of fans in the stands led to a less than thrilling viewing experience. 
As the 2021 season rapidly approaches, universities are beginning to make decisions regarding COVID-19 testing and vaccinations in order to allow fans into the stands. 
On Friday, the University of Oregon and Oregon State University became the first Power-5 schools to announce that either a negative test or proof of vaccination will be required in order to attend football games for the 2021 season.
“Effective Monday, August 23, attendees 12 and older at designated University of Oregon events and activities—including select concerts, conferences, and all Oregon Athletics events—will be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within the past three days to obtain entry,” reads a statement on the UO website.
“University events and activities requiring proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test will be designated by the university in consultation with the local public health authority.” 
Oregon State will be requiring the same in order to enter university athletic events.
