BREAKING: Clemson Announces 28 Athletes, Staff Have Tested Positive For COVID-19
The 2020 college football season is going to be in heavy doubt, and today’s news does not help matters.
On Friday, it was reported by Clemson athletics that they had 28 positive COVID-19 tests among 315 athletes and staff tested.
That data includes a significant number of Clemson football players, although the university didn’t break down specifically how many.
“According to the release, Clemson has notified those with positive tests and will isolate them for a period of at least 10 days. Those who’ve been in contact with them have been asked to self-quarantine for 14 days.
The school said that most of the total cases have been asymptomatic and there’s been no hospitalization.”
Texas had 13 football players test positive on Thursday. Houston football suspended voluntary workouts after it failed to test players upon returning to campus and ended up with six positive tests.
SMU announced five positive tests for athletes this week while there have been multiple reports of positive tests at Kansas State, Alabama and Michigan.
