AMHERST (CBS) -- UMass Amherst will allow tailgating on campus this Saturday. COVID restrictions will be in place.
Last weekend, the school canceled tailgating due to a spike in coronavirus breakthrough cases but students held a large off-campus party instead.
There were 371 COVID-19 cases reported by the university from Sept. 8-14.
Nearly 97% of students and faculty are vaccinated and 1.7% of them have tested positive. In comparison, 10% of individuals who were given exemptions have tested positive.
The school is urging everyone to get tested and vaccinated.
