Texas Football Players Test Positive For COVID-19
Multiple Texas football players tested positive for COVID-19 this week. The university made the revelation in an announcement on Wednesday night.
“Texas Athletics on-boarded 58 Football student-athletes this week, two had positive COVID-19 PCR test results and one tested positive for the COVID-19 antibody,” Allen Hardin said.
“One of the student-athletes identified symptoms during pre-screening and was tested before arriving on campus, while the other two were tested during the on-campus screening process. Per Athletics Department protocol, their families have been notified and the two student-athletes with the COVID-19 virus are now self-isolating.”
As of yet, it is unclear what the status of college football will be next season. The presumption has been that it will return as normal. However, if more cases like this arise, it would not be all that surprising to see circumstances change.
