Tulane University Temporarily Shuts Down Men’s Basketball Program; 97% of School Community is Fully Inoculated


21 months since COVID-19 hysteria began, and we’re still halting athletic events over a virus that has a 99.9% survival rate for most age demographics.

Collegiate athletes are among the least vulnerable groups in society, but universities and public health authorities continue their insane power trip.

And despite the experimental COVID-19 injections entering the equation, a positive result from a faulty PCR test can shut down a program.

When will athletes realize the clown show continues until they stop playing along?

That goes for vaccinated and unvaccinated.

The latest edition of COVID insanity goes to the Tulane Green Wave men’s basketball program.

On Saturday, the school’s athletic department announced the temporary shutdown of the men’s basketball team due to a virus outbreak.

As the Tulane University website states:

All students will be required to receive the COVID-19 vaccination for Fall Semester 2021. Additional information regarding the vaccine requirement for international students will be shared soon. Please click here for the locations of vaccination sites at Tulane and throughout the area.

Declining A Vaccination

Students may decline the vaccination for reasons consistent with Louisiana state vaccine laws by submitting a Vaccine Declination Form.

The only exceptions to this policy were medical and religious exemptions.

Despite the COVID-19 jab mandate, that didn’t prevent Tulane University from experiencing another outbreak.

97% of the Tulane University community is inoculated against COVID-19, but school officials reinstated a mask mandate on Friday. states:

Officials said everyone must wear masks inside campus buildings through the end of the year, regardless of their vaccination status. They encouraged the Tulane community to move non-essential gatherings with food and drink outside and follow CDC recommendations.

The Tulane University community is 97% vaccinated. The school’s positivity rate is 1.4%, and its health department is monitoring 88 active cases, according to the Molecular Pathology Lab’s COVID-19 testing dashboard. Jeff Asher of Crimealytics said this is the university’s second-highest case total since Hurricane Ida.

There are now at least 37 omicron cases in Louisiana, according to the Louisiana Department of Health.

Tulane University Athletics issued this press release:

Tulane University Athletics announced today that its men’s basketball team has been temporarily shut down due to multiple positive cases of COVID-19 within the program.

Due to the Green Wave’s temporary shutdown, Tulane’s upcoming matchups with Texas A&M (Dec. 14) and Grambling State (Dec. 18) will be canceled. In addition, no organized team activities will take place during the shutdown.

Tulane expects to play its next game on Dec. 21 at home against crosstown rival New Orleans. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. and will be aired on ESPN+. Fans can also listen to the game live on the radio by tuning into 104.1 The Spot.

The men’s basketball program didn’t provide details on the number of players or coaching staff members that tested positive for the virus.
