Something extraordinary would have to happen for admin to step in and stop Bucknell's season. If WBB has no positives after their protocol period concludes, they will play. Other sports, maybe not, but MBB and WBB will continue as long as they have negative tests.
On the Bucknell forum there's talk of many new positive tests. Perhaps Bison will weigh in as to the outlook there.
Can't tell. Bucknell last semester kept the campus open and had few covid cases. But there has been a significant outbreak on campus due to a few idiots off campus throwing parties the first couple of days after their return to campus. They are tested weekly, but that isn't enough to contain it before it spreads. Thus far this semester the positivity rate is 1.8% - which is 8 times what it was for the fall semester. A few have been sent home and hopefully more culprits will be gone soon.
Thus far the men's and women's teams haven't had any recurrence of positive tests and are scheduled to play this weekend. Hopefully that will happen.
