No positive COVID-19 cases reported among Maryland student-athletes
Add Maryland to the very short list of schools that have welcomed student-athletes back to campus but have not had any confirmed positive COVID-19 tests. The school announced the results this week.
Maryland conducted 105 tests for it’s initial on-campus screening and none of the results returned with a positive test. Indiana is the other school in the B1G which has allowed student-athletes to return that has not reported a positive test.
Some schools — Nebraska and Ohio State — will not make the results available to the public, citing privacy laws.
Maryland allowed student-athletes to begin returning to campus on June 8. After one full week on campus, players could be begin participating in voluntary workouts (June 15).
