Report: 23 of 28 Clemson Athletics' Positive COVID-19 Tests Are Football Players

Twenty-three Clemson football players have tested positive for COVID-19, Grace Raynor of The Athletic reported Friday.

The results came after 315 Clemson student-athletes and staff were tested, per Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports. Five additional student-athletes and staff tested positive, resulting in 28 confirmed COVID-19 cases.

More than half of the players are asymptomatic, per Raynor, and none of the positive tests have resulted in hospitalizations.

Players who tested positive will be in isolation for a least 10 days and will need to be asymptomatic for the final three days before they can emerge from isolation.
