Below are the number of tests reported by date and the number of positive tests. The test reported date may lag by a day the date when a student was tested.
April 1 714 / 1 April 2 481 / 0 April 3 189 / 0 April 4 No tests April 5 572 / 3 April 6 1018 / 4 April 7 1301 / 9 April 8 1015 / 10 April 9 1102 / 8
And why are we shutting down?
Because the number of students in isolation and quarantine has now filled the majority of the college's isolation and quarantine beds, and if that capacity is exhausted, the college will close down as it did in March 2020.

Watching Bucknell vs Fordham. Both teams drive right to goal line before fumbling. DeMorat slicing and dicing Bucknell defense with accuracy, hurry up pace. But Bucknell #20 Coleman Bennett a return and running threat.
What a Cluster F#@!.... PL website says Bucknell @holy Cross, 2:00pm.....
There’s no way the PL sends a 2-0 team to play at a 2-1 team - ESPECIALLY given the disparity between how the two teams fared in their most recent games - against the same opponent. (Not to mention how they each did against their other common opponent.)
There would be no logic whatsoever for such a move.

The logic for such a move is that HC is presently on campus lockdown and there is no assurance that it might still be on lockdown a week from now.
If HC had not gone on lockdown, then I think the odds would be that the game would be at Fitton.
Have to say a prayer or two that no HC football player tests positive in the next week. As there is no practice or team meetings before Wednesday, that should avoid what happened to Colgate on the bus ride.
Pennsylvania is allowing 50% capacity at outdoor sporting events. Maybe Bucknell will loosen its restrictions for the title game and get 6,550 actual fans in the house. I know this is unlikely to happen because, you know, the PL, but it would be fun.
Could HC closing down athletics because of Covid 19 tests have something to do with it?
Likely, but who knows given the suits in Center Valley would eff up a cup of coffee.
The ineptitude of the PL never ceases to amaze me. What a joke. If the powers that be are moving the game to Bucknell, they had better have assurances from Bucknell that HC will be permitted to have fans in attendance, even if limited to family members of players and coaches only. Their current policy of permitting home fans but not visitors is absurd and without any logic. Looking for ADMB to show some leadership and rectify this nonsense.
