Local News

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Syracuse University plans to return to full capacity at the Dome this fall with limited restrictions and no social distancing, officials say.

Based on New York State guidelines the Dome will require unvaccinated and those whose vaccination status is unknown to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test.

An antigen-type test result must be completed within six hours of entry and a PCR-type test result must be within 72 hours of entry.

“So this is really a collaboration with the community and campus leaders and state leaders, so we really all came together and this is the guidance we received, and we’re really excited for the opportunity to be able to invite all of our fans back. It’s really a testament honestly to the citizens in this area, who have worked so hard and have sacrificed to help us get our COVID numbers down and put us in this position to be able to open up to the community and bring everyone back.”

Andrew Goodrich, Deputy Athletics Director and Chief Marketing Officer of Syracuse University.

Per CDC guidelines, masks will be required for unvaccinated fans over the age of four.

Syracuse football and basketball season tickets are on sale now.
