Safety Protocols

Please review the established protocols carefully to minimize the risk of COVID-19 exposure while practicing and competing for this semester.  For reference, the term “fully vaccinated” means the completion of the vaccine series as well as the 14-day post-final vaccination period and a booster. Changes to the protocols are subject to change as university health and safety policies and/or NY State change.


  • Masks must be worn at all times while indoors per the university mask policy, except during competition (on-campus and off).
  • It is recommended that KN95 masks be used for sports clubs.
  • Regardless of vaccination status, all persons are expected to properly wear a face mask while traveling in the vehicle, except when eating or drinking.


  • Activities and competitions can take place off-campus and must follow all health and safety guidelines of the venue.
  • Regardless of vaccination status, it is recommended that all persons are expected to properly wear a face mask while traveling in the vehicle, except when eating or drinking.
    • Consumption of food and beverage to be minimized as much as possible while on the bus.  Sips of beverages and light snack consumption allowed—no meals on the bus.
    • When possible, travel with the windows open to increase airflow and do not operate the vehicle’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system on recirculating air mode. The recirculating air button should be off.
