When can Syracuse let fans back in the Carrier Dome, and how should they return?

Oct 13, 2020

Updated 10:49 AM; Facebook Share Syracuse, N.Y. -- When Syracuse football hosts Liberty this week, there will be no fans in the Carrier Dome. When the Orange visits Clemson next week, Syracuse likely will play in front of 19,000 fans in Memorial Stadium. Ron DeSantis said stadiums can operate at full capacity, and the University of Florida’s football coach advocated for a crowd of 90,000 . In New York, where there the number of new cases is smaller, Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s mandate that stadiums remain empty is still in place. In Upstate New York, conversations around athletics are starting to increase in volume, thanks to the success of the Buffalo Bills, the renovation of the Carrier Dome and the approach of college basketball season. Syracuse is scheduled to host its third home football game of the season without fans on Saturday. The opening of the college basketball season, when local pressure will really ramp up, is less than two months away. “Syracuse University has not yet submitted a plan to New York State regarding reopening athletic events at the stadium to the broader community,” Syracuse Senior Associate Vice President for Communications Sarah Scalese said in a statement. “We have, however, had very preliminary conversations with New York State about how we may potentially reopen the stadium, beginning only with a very small group of our students. We continue to explore this possibility as well as the eventual reopening of the stadium to our fans and the community." “It’s something we’re looking at,” Cuomo said about the return of fans. “Buffalo and the NFL have come up with a plan themselves to manage the situation. We haven’t gotten contacted by any other leagues where they’ve done the same and come up with a program on how to operate a stadium. If and when they do, we will be attentive and eager to cooperate.” Given how coronavirus guidance has come out over the past few months, approval of one stadium in Upstate New York seems like it could result in a set of guidelines that will provide others a plan to follow. Local and national public health experts had mixed reactions about asked whether it’s an appropriate time for fans in CNY to return to stadiums. They all agreed that when fans do return, it should happen in controlled phases and with substantial changes. Is Central New York ready? Dr. Katie Anderson, an infectious disease specialist from SUNY Upstate, said she doesn’t believe it’s an appropriate time to consider the return of fans. She said that many areas of the country are seeing a surge in cases, likely due to the combination of activities shifting indoors and the return of students to school. Anderson said Central New York is currently experiencing a small rise in cases, likely for those same reasons. That’s enough to give her pause. Anderson said she doesn’t believe it’s appropriate to add another risk factor while those risk factors are still causing an increase. Having students in school, she believes, should be prioritized. “We’re seeing a slow but steady increase in (New York)," Anderson said. “Some of that is expected because we’re taking some calculated risks by getting kids back to school and getting more places open. ... We need to balance that out by understanding there is a trade-off. we need to reduce interactions in other places so that we don’t see a dramatic increase in cases. My perspective is we shouldn’t be moving toward bringing lots of people together such as sporting events.” Her concern about the direction of coronavirus infections as the country enters the fall and winter was echoed by Dr. Michael Mina, an assistant professor of epidemiology at Harvard. Dr. Brian Leydet, an epidemiology professor at SUNY-ESF, and Dr. Geoff Dreher, a primary care sports physician at Johns Hopkins University, expressed less certainty. Leydet said that he doesn’t believe certain communities, including some that have already brought back fans, should be doing so. But he said the success that Central New York has had controlling the virus makes it a reasonable thing to seriously consider locally. “What we have is very low transmission in the community, we have very low disease prevalence in the surrounding areas," Leydet said. "It’s a very different scenario than some of the other schools around the country. I think there is a path forward, personally. I think there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Now, getting there as safely as possible is the ultimate goal. The plans have to be there. But I think if anyone has the capability it’s our community. I wouldn’t count the season out.” Students should come first When fans do return, all of the medical experts recommended that it should happen with substantial safety protocols in place and utilize a phased approach, an indication it will be a while before we see the Carrier Dome the way we remember it. “It’s a difficult situation and different communities are approaching it differently,” Dreher said. “Just like we’re doing with schools, a gradual approach to having fans would seem to make sense. Don’t go back to live games expecting the same atmosphere, culture, camaraderie with interacting with other fans and tailgating. A lot of the amenities you’re used to probably won’t be open." Dreher suggested that phases should last between two and four weeks, providing time to see if protocols are effective. Leydet suggested that Syracuse should accommodate students first, a plan that has multiple benefits. Syracuse University could tie attendance to negative coronavirus test results among students, creating an atmosphere where all fans could be expected not to have the virus. If a student did later test positive the school would be alerted to that person’s status, as well as the status of those around them. That would help with both contact tracing and provide information to the school about whether the plan worked because no one was sick or because the protocols stopped the spread. “You’d have to do start on a small scale, right?” Leydet said. “You’d start really small with people you could confirm are negative. If you don’t have any issues, then OK. You step it up a little bit. But you don’t just decide to go full bore and put 15,000 fans in the Dome. You start with a community you can control and then introduce the unknown." Around the country, some teams have limited initial attendance to families of coaches and players, although that creates some potential concerns about travel. That plan might work better at the NFL level, where it could be limited to friends and family living in the area. Another phase could limit attendance to season-ticket holders, which might help limit spread by ensuring the heavy majority of fans are state or area residents. While there have been few, if any, reports of spreading caused by sporting events across the country as fans have returned with safety protocols in place, one unknown in Central New York would be the Carrier Dome, which is an unusually large indoor venue. While experts believe the majority of transmission occurs via droplets, transmission also occurs through surfaces and smaller aerosol particles. Those smaller particles, which can hang in the air and travel longer distances than droplets by riding air currents, are believed to have been involved in some super-spreader events. Most masks block some aerosols but not all of them. The amount of protection depends on the material of the mask (N-95s are best) and how snugly they fit. The quality of the Carrier Dome’s air filtration and circulation systems could also play a role in dictating the risk. “A lot of the Southern states and colleges that are doing this are doing it in open-air stadiums,” Leydet said. “That is very different than the (Carrier Dome). We know about the optics, the importance of aerosol spread, enclosed spaces and air flow. ... Yes, it is a huge space. But it’s more enclosed than Death Valley. Destiny USA is a huge mall and a closed space. They went through steps to get that open. So it’s not undoable. But it is an enclosed space in terms of the virus, and I do think that’s one of the holdbacks.” Leydet cautioned that in addition to transmission, officials might take optics into consideration. Experts have expressed concern about bottlenecks at entrances and exits. In addition to potential spread, the scene of hundreds or thousands of people gathered together at an entrance or exit at a state-approved event could cause the public to lower its guard and decide such interaction must be safe. Individuals who prioritize things other than sports might wonder why they are prohibited from attending concerts, filling restaurants and classrooms, throwing parties or attending large weddings or religious services. The willingness of individuals to follow guidance wanes when they perceive a double-standard. It will be different When fans do return, the experts agreed they should expect a changed experience beyond a limited number of people. Syracuse has not publicly shared much about what will be different, but public health experts offered some anticipated changes. Tailgating has been banned at many stadiums during college football season. That decision helps limit the amount of time fans might spend around each other unmasked, how close a large group is able to gather and reduces alcohol intake, which can lead to less compliance. Ushers likely will be needed to enforce mask-wearing, distancing and ensure fans sit in assigned seats and avoid mingling with other groups. Anderson suggested that schools could schedule entrance and exit times for fans in order to limit crowding. Concessions could be limited to pre-packed items or purchases from vendors to limit lines and shared surfaces. She even suggested schools could temporarily allow noisemakers and discourage fans from verbally yelling or cheering. The public health experts said they would encourage fans who have at-risk conditions or interact with those who have at-risk conditions to avoid stadiums when they reopen. Given that we’re months into the pandemic, most of the public health experts also suggested there is minimal harm in waiting just a little longer. Holding off would allow Central New York to learn from the experiences of others without taking the risk. For the moment, it appears all Syracuse fans can do is wait, watch and try to keep the area’s numbers down in order to return as quickly as possible. “We need to keep our eye on the long-term and the horizon with this virus,” Anderson said. “We are seeing some Covid-fatigue and we have a long way to go with it. We can’t afford to get tired or ambivalent. It requires us to continue to be as vigilant as we have been. I think we’re still at the point where we’re going to have to make some sacrifices."
