Big East COVID-19 protocols remain a work in progress

Like most things these days, it looks like the Big East’s COVID-19 protocols are up in the air until further notice. Commissioner Val Ackerman said Wednesday that the conference is still finalizing a plan with its schools and added that guidelines will be based on NCAA recommendations.

“We do expect a uniformity in the standard just so that we can make sure that all Big East schools are kind of following the same level of compliance so that we can assure the health and safety of all of our participants,” Ackerman said.

Testing protocols

Ackerman said the Big East will have a standard for testing that she expects to include a mix of PCR and antigen testing.
