Michigan State says all members of its football team will quarantine or isolate after another staff member and an athlete tested positive for COVID-19.
The team had already paused workouts after a staff member tested positive. The athletic department said Friday that testing conducted over the past week included a second staff member and an athlete testing positive.
“All members of the football team will quarantine or isolate, while awaiting completion of a 14-day quarantine,” the athletic department said in a statement.
Surveillance testing of athletes was completed Wednesday and is set to be repeated before they are cleared to return to workouts.
