To attend college football games, the Oregon Ducks and Oregon State Beavers will require vaccination documentation or a negative COVID-19 test.

OREGON, EUGENE
— Oregon and Oregon State were the first Power 5 schools to declare that persons above the age of 12 will be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test in order to attend football games.
The decision was taken with public health authorities and “peer institutions in the state,” according to Oregon’s release on Friday. The negative test result must be from within three days of the event.
The mandate takes effect on Monday, ending a week in which state officials warned of fast filling hospitals as daily recorded cases hit new highs.
Several Pac-12 colleges have mandated that students and employees get vaccinated or request for an exemption.
On September 1, the Oregon football team will kick off its season at Autzen Stadium in Eugene, which has a capacity of 54,000.
Fresno State was defeated by a score of 4 to 1.
On September 1, Oregon State kicks off its home schedule at Reser Stadium.
Hawaii is favored by 11 points.
Due to a recent COVID-19 spike, Hawaii became the first major college football school to announce that it would have no fans in attendance for its first sporting activities of the season.
Hawaii’s first home football game is scheduled for September.
Against Portland State, the score was 5 to 1.
The announcements come just a week after Tulane University in New Orleans became the first NCAA Division I institution to require proof of vaccination or a negative test to attend sporting events.
Tulane’s decision was prompted by a city rule that also affects the NFL’s New Orleans Saints, although school officials said they were working to implement the policy on their own.

For home games, the Las Vegas Raiders will demand spectators to show confirmation of Covid-19 vaccine.

The immunization requirement will take effect on September 13, the day before the team’s first regular-season home game against the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night.
Fans will be able to attend home games without having to wear a mask as a result of this decision, according to the press release.
The policy on vaccines and no masks is the first of its type in the NFL.
The Raiders relocated to Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas last year, but due to the pandemic, no fans were allowed to attend games.
“Our number one priority has always been health and safety,” Raiders owner Mark Davis said in a statement.
“After consulting with Governor Sisolak and other community leaders, this policy ensures that we will be able to operate at full capacity for the entire season without masks for fully vaccinated fans,” says the new rule.
New measures for huge events in the state were announced by Steve Sisolak.
Any event with a capacity of 4,000 people or more can either compel all attendees to wear masks or provide masking exemptions to those who demonstrate proof of vaccination.
Indoors, he said, children under the age of 12 and those who are just partially vaccinated must still wear a mask.
“My goal with today’s new policy decision is to give the private sector additional options with a public benefit — the freedom to remove their mask during a concert or game if they’re completely vaccinated,” Sisolak said.
The vaccine mandate is the latest example of the NFL leveraging its enormous clout to promote Covid-19 vaccines, which offer excellent protection against infection and serious illness.
Those who have been inoculated have been given vast liberties, while those who have not been vaccinated are subjected to onerous limitations and continuous testing.
Furthermore, the NFL has stated that breakouts among unvaccinated players might result in forfeits and jeopardize a team’s playoff chances.
The incentives were effective.
The Atlanta Falcons became the first NFL team to get their entire roster immunized against Covid-19 on Monday, achieving a pristine 100% immunization rate.
The squad said on its website that “each player will now experience the perks of being able to work out and eat together.”
“They won’t have to test every day, they won’t have to wear masks throughout the facility, and they won’t have to quarantine after close contact with someone who tests positive,” the NFL told CNN last week.
According to the league, the lowest club had a 73% success rate.
