“#Clemson football hits 37 total coronavirus cases after new tests”
June 26, 2020 | 7:00pm
One of the nation’s premier college football programs announced Friday it had 14 more positive tests for the novel coronavirus this week. It brings the Tigers’ total to 37 players – nearly a third of their roster — and 47 positive tests altogether of student-athletes and staff members.
Clemson said it only has 19 active cases of COVID-19 after 28 previous positive cases completed a 10-day isolation period and those individuals have been cleared to resume workouts. There have been no hospitalizations and half of the positive cases, the school said, have been asymptomatic. Anyone in contact with them had to self-quarantine for at least 14 days.
Many programs are dealing with similar issues after the NCAA allowed schools to hold voluntary workouts at the start of the month. Houston and Kansas State paused those workouts, but many others have pressed on like Clemson. Some schools, however, aren’t releasing testing data.
Official practices are scheduled to begin Aug. 7
