After going through the steps of the four-phase COVID-19 prevention program that Marquette University and the Milwaukee Health Department required, women’s volleyball is now able to attend group practices.
The four-step program was put into place when athletes stepped onto campus this semester. With the completion of every step, athletes were able to have more interaction with each other.
Women’s volleyball head coach Ryan Theis said everyone in the athletics department was tested every two weeks, and once there were no positive tests, the four-phase program began, with each phase lasting 10 to 14 days.
Stage one included voluntary activities and no sharing of volleyballs.
