After students rushed the field and numerous parties on campus following Notre Dame's double-overtime win over Clemson, Fr. John Jenkins fires off memo to students stating they must now follow draconian guidelines before being allowed to depart for Thanksgiving.
The mandate includes a Covid test that must result as negative before leaving South Bend area. Failure to adhere could result in an administrative hold on receiving transcripts and spring registration. Father Jenkins knows where he speaks. He attended the 'superspreader event' without mask last month when President Trump announced Amy Coney Barrett as his Supreme Court nominee. Jenkins was one of many who tested positive afterwards.
Considering Covid has already consumed Notre Dame and other college campuses, fears of a significant or even deadly outbreak occurring seem overblown.
