In South Bend on Saturday night, there was just a sea of Notre Dame fans that stood shoulder-to-shoulder on the field after their team defeated Clemson in a two-overtime thriller.
School administrators were not pleased to see that scene play out, and they have now implemented some strict new health protocols as a result. Notre Dame president John I. Jenkins issued a letter to students informing them they are not permitted to leave South Bend until they are cleared from COVID-19 testing.
Any student who disregards the protocols will face a registration hold.
In addition to that, students were told there will be a zero tolerance policy for social gatherings that do not follow health and safety protocols. Students who violate the protocols will “face severe sanctions.”
