Gophers football program pauses team activities amid positive COVID-19 tests, provides update
The University of Minnesota football program announced a pause in all team-related activities on Wednesday due to several positive COVID-19 tests.
The university said 15 student-athletes and six staff members tested positive in a five-day span, as of Tuesday. That’s when the team called off Saturday’s game against Wisconsin due to the COVID-19 cases.
A total of 10 more people (three student-athletes and seven staff members) have tested positive for COVID-19, after Tuesday’s results were confirmed, the university said Wednesday night.
The program is still following all health guidelines and will provide another update on Saturday.
