The Georgia State Panthers should’ve faced off against Charlotte on Saturday, but they postponed the game because of COVID-19 results given to them.
As it turns out, it never should’ve happened because the COVID-19 tests that were read incorrectly.
The incorrect results showed four positive individuals and contact tracing identified 17 others, including one coach, who would require quarantining, according to ESPN.
“It was at this point that the lab director informed our medical staff that a human error Friday morning caused the error in test results,” Cobb said in a statement. “The disappointing news is that we could have played on Saturday. More importantly, the positive news is we are not dealing with an outbreak at this time. We appreciate the professionalism shown by [Charlotte athletic director] Mike Hill and Coach [Will] Healy throughout the past 48 hours. We look forward to hosting East Carolina on Saturday, Oct. 3 at Center Parc Stadium.”
The Panthers, who lost to Louisiana in overtime on Sept. 19, is set to host East Carolina on Saturday.
