Miami football enters COVID-19 protocol, multiple players test positive for virus

As Year 3 of the COVID-19 pandemic approaches, college athletics continues to grapple with how to function with an ever-changing surface. According to a report from Andrea Adelson of ESPN, the Miami football program has entered COVID-19 protocols.

The Hurricanes are scheduled to play the Washington State Cougars on Dec. 31 in the Sun Bowl. Miami was scheduled to depart for this game on Dec. 26; however, that may be tricky now.

Adelson notes that different position groups have been impacted with several players testing positive for the virus.

Unfortunately, we’ve entered the COVID Void again: a miserable place with a news cycle that revolves around players, coaches and staff testing positive for COVID-19, while various programs pause team-related activites.

Currently, three ACC men’s basketball programs — Louisville, Syracuse and Boston College — are in the protocols.

The Miami women’s basketball program had to cancel a recent game vs. Duke while in the COVID-19 protocols, too.
