Several college athletic departments have allowed student-athletes to return to campus for voluntary workouts throughout the month. At most schools, those players are being tested for COVID-19 as they make their return.
While some schools have already reported positive tests for the virus, Ohio State will not be revealing results of the tests. The school is declining to publish those results, as it could lead to personal identification, according to a report from the Columbus Dispatch.
Ohio State is one of several B1G schools that has agreed to open its doors to student-athletes as part of a phased return to campus. Football players became returning to Columbus on June 8, one week after the NCAA’s moratorium on organized team activities ended.
Already, several schools have revealed that individuals have tested positive for coronavirus. Because those schools had proper protocols and plans in place for such events, they’ve been equipped to isolate and quarantine individuals who test positive or those who have come into contact with the individuals who tested positive.
Other schools have not been so hesitant to release the test results, but don’t expect to see them from Ohio State.
