Louisville suspends activities for four teams after 29 members test positive for COVID-19

The University of Louisville has temporarily suspended activities for four different fall sports teams after 29 members tested positive for COVID-19: men’s and women’s soccer, volleyball and field hockey.

Concerns go well beyond the 29 members that tested positive, though. According to Louisville, “multiple other teammates and student-athletes from other sports” may have been exposed to the virus, too. Those members are in quarantine now.

With contact tracing, the school was able to determine that the primary source for the positive tests was an off-campus party that took place recently.

Last week, when the ACC announced its schedule for the 2020 football season, the league also presented its plan for non-revenue fall sports, too. Fall sports are allowed to start seasons on Sept. 10. The championship schedule for fall sports will comply to the following dates and locations:

    • The cross country championships will be held at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, N.C. on October 30, and include all fifteen member schools
    • The field hockey championship will be held at Duke University on November 5, 6 and 8
    • The women’s soccer championship will include the top four teams and be held at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, N.C. on November 6 and 8, as previously announced
    • The men’s soccer championship will include the top four teams and be held at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, N.C. on November 13 and 15
