The University of Maryland has conducted an initial coronavirus testing of 105 student-athletes and none of which resulted in a positive result, the school announced on Friday.
Maryland allowed fall sport athletes back on campus back on June 8. They could to begin individual, voluntary workouts on June 15. Below is a copy of the release from the athletic department.
Maryland Athletics, as part of a gradual, phased approach to the return of student-athletes to campus, is working with the University Health Center to conduct COVID-19 testing. Throughout this phase, we expect there will be some positive test results and have planned accordingly, through the implementation of State and county public health and university guidelines for education, contract tracing, and self-isolation.
During our initial on-campus screening of 105 student-athletes, no student-athlete tested positive for COVID-19.
Elsewhere across the country, student-athletes are testing positive at alarming rates. Houston, Kansas State and Boise State are some of the schools that had to shut down summer activities for the time being due to the prevalency in coronavirus cases.
So far, so good for Maryland as they begin to prepare for the fall season.
