LSU eliminating CDC wellness check for fans

Louisiana State University (LSU) announced Monday it would no longer require a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) medical wellness check for fans attending an upcoming home game against the University of Missouri in Baton Rouge, La.

Previously, fans were required to answer a questionnaire to assess the health and potential COVID-19 exposure before entering the stadium. The CDC Facilities COVID-19 Screening included questions about coronavirus symptoms, exposure and whether the person was awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test.  

Now, fans will not be screened, according to the university, but will still be required to wear masks in the stadium seating areas. 

The school noted the decision was made “to reduce lines and wait times at gate entry points” but urged those coming to the game “to conduct a self-assessment before heading to the game to check for covid-19 symptoms.”
