During Phase 0, there are no in-person athletic activities allowed. Players can only meet with each other and with coaches virtually.

Today’s report, from The Yale Daily News, said that testing on campus identified a cluster of 20 cases among students in three different buildings. All residents of those buildings were asked to quarantine in their rooms.

Yale reverted to Phase 0 on Oct. 13 after a cluster emerged on campus, but in-person activities were allowed to resume on Oct. 21.

As far as hockey, all Ivy League schools aren’t playing until at least Jan. 1, so this won’t affect the Bulldogs in the immediate future.
