LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The University of Louisville announced all team-related football activities will be paused indefinitely due to "a heightened quantity of positive COVID-19 tests and accompanying contact tracing" among staff and team members, according to a release.
During a press conference Wednesday evening, UofL Athletic Director Vince Tyra said 10 players have tested positive for COVID-19 and five more players are in quarantine due to contact tracing. Five members of support staff have also tested positive for the virus and two more are in quarantine.
“We are taking a precautionary measure to pause due the number of student-athletes and staff that have been impacted by the virus,” Tyra said.
UofL's game at Virginia scheduled for Saturday will be tentatively rescheduled for Saturday, November 14 at 3:30 p.m. on ACCN.
