MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — A WVU football player has tested positive for COVID-19 and will self-isolate for 14 days.
A news release from the WVU Athletic Department Monday afternoon also says contact tracing has identified other football players who may have been exposed and they will be mandated to self-quarantine.
Monday was the first day for voluntary workouts for WVU football players in Morgantown. Testing for COVID-19 is part of the required regime. According to previously announced protocols, players and football staff members are tested 72-hours before their return date.
Marshall University players returned to campus in May. The university announced on June 1 that two players had tested positive and then later announced a third case.
