Michigan State releases latest COVID-19 testing results
Michigan State’s athletic department has updated its COVID-19 testing results.
On Monday, the school’s athletic department sent out a statement with information regarding the latest round of testing, which took place between Aug. 7 and Aug. 14. The statement says that over 250 tests were administered among student-athletes, coaches and staff during that one-week window.
All results were negative.
Michigan State has conducted over 1,000 screenings for COVID-19. There have been more than 800 administered among student-athletes, with 30 positive results. Staff have accounted for 235 tests, with five positive cases.
During the summer, Michigan State’s entire football team was forced to quarantine for 14 days out of an abundance of caution after multiple staff members tested positive. It was one of two B1G programs to send its full team into quarantine, along with Rutgers.
Six B1G teams were forced to pause workouts at some point during the summer due to COVID-19 testing.
