The Ohio State Department of Athletics announced today that the school has paused all voluntary workouts, “following the results of its most recent Covid-19 testing of student-athletes.”
The school is not sharing infection data publicly because "it could lead to the identification of specific individuals and compromise their medical privacy," the university's athletics department said in its statement.
The pause affects men’s and women’s basketball, field hockey, football, men’s and women’s soccer and women’s volleyball.
“If a student-athlete tests positive for Covid-19, he/she will self-isolate for at least 14 days and receive daily check-ups from the Department of Athletics medical staff. Student-athletes living alone will isolate in their residence. If they have roommates, they will self-isolate in a designated room on campus," the statement said.
Earlier Wednesday, the University of North Carolina suspended its football program’s voluntary workout program after 37 players and staff tested positive for Covid-19.
