College Postpones Crimson Jam Show Indefinitely Amid Covid-19 Rise |  News

Pranay Varada ’25 said he was “sad to see it go” because it was intended to kick off the start of the school year, but he “wasn’t too surprised.” The postponement came one day after Dean of Students Katherine G. O’Dair and Harvard University Health Services Director Giang T. Nguyen announced an increase in testing cadences. O’Dair and Nguyen also urged students to wear their masks and limit their interactions with others. “I can understand why the University decided to cancel it,” he said. “But it is sort of hard to comprehend, considering the other events that are still taking place.”

Colleran added the College will reschedule the event for a future date if it is safe to do so. “Given the increase in positive cases among Harvard College students and the newly announced implementation of a 3x a week testing requirement, we do not have the proper measures in place to hold a large-scale, congregate event until we can fully implement these new policy changes,” Colleran wrote.

The announcement stated that the Student Involvement Fair — which was also scheduled to take place on Friday — would proceed. The event, however, would require masks and extend throughout the entire Yard to reduce crowding. DSO Assistant Dean Kate T. Colleran wrote in the announcement that the College cannot safely hold the event at this time.

“That was kind of an uncomfortable position to be in,” he said. Hasegawa said he eventually received final confirmation of the postponement on Friday morning through Colleran’s email to the Harvard affiliates. He also heard back from the CEB, who explained they were in a “similar position of confusion,” per Hasegawa. After receiving the email, Hasegawa said he waited throughout the day for an official announcement. He said he was put in the “awkward position” of responding to questions from peers with “no public way for them to verify” the information.

Daniel K. Hasegawa ’22, a student singer and guitarist scheduled to open for B.o.B., rehearsed daily leading up to the event. He said he first heard about the decision from a representative of the production company hired by the CEB on Thursday morning. The Dean of Students Office did not respond to a request for comment Monday.
