OLEAN – The St. Bonaventure men’s basketball program is pausing all team activities after a member of the team’s Tier 1 personnel tested positive for COVID-19.
The program was notified of the positive result on Thursday.
As a result, the team will not participate in the upcoming Mohegan Sun “Bubbleville” games in Connecticut. They had been slated to play three games from Nov. 25 to 27.
Meanwhile, the university is transitioning to fully remote classes.
The school was scheduled to move to remote learning on Wednesday, ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday. However, because of increased COVID-19 activity within Cattaraugus County is making the switch sooner.
The University’s President says residential students must turn in their keys by noon on Sunday.
Students who signed up for the Wednesday, Nov. 25, break shuttle bus will now depart Sunday at 8 a.m. The bus company will contact each student who signed up.
