Missouri State Athletics Director Kyle Moats said in a 10-minute presentation at Thursday's Board of Governors meeting that every student-athlete will be tested for coronavirus upon their return to campus.

In a virtual meeting, Moats laid out a plan, saying Missouri State's athletic facilities will open for voluntary workouts in the first week of June.

"We plan to open up voluntary workouts the week of June 1st," Moats said. "That will be approved by the NCAA, I'm almost certain, next week by the Division I Council. That means our student-athletes can come back and work out at our facilities.
