No new positive cases in Michigan State's latest round of COVID-19 tests
A recent release from Michigan State provides some positive news regarding the latest round of COVID-19 testing among student-athletes, coaches and staff on campus.
Michigan State announced on Monday that 74 student-athletes were tested for COVID-19 on July 6. All of those screenings returned with a negative result. The school began allowing student-athletes, coaches and staff back on campus last month, when the NCAA lifted its moratorium on organized team activities.
