Florida halts meetings, practices amid uptick in COVID cases

Florida halts meetings, practices amid uptick in COVID cases”

Florida has paused all team activities after "an increase in positive COVID tests among players this week", athletic director Scott Stricklin said in a statement Tuesday.

Florida paused all of its football activities as a result of the increase in positive cases within the team. Stricklin added that coach Dan Mullen has spoken with players and parents and that he told last week's opponent, Texas A&M, and Saturday's opponent, the Tigers.

Florida is scheduled to take on LSU this Saturday, though the status of that game remains uncertain.

UF will re-evaluate the outbreak on Wednesday, the athletic department said.

"If you look at what we've been able to do".

The team had 21 positive cases once players returned to campus in late May. In the same breath, he hoped aloud that Florida could "pack The Swamp" with 90,000 fans for the Gators' ensuing game against LSU, even though the state of Florida is among the most affected by COVID-19 in the U.S. Mullen didn't double down Monday, but he didn't back down, either. "I don't think the section behind our bench, I didn't see an empty seat. The governor has passed a rule that we're allowed to pack the Swamp and have 90,000 in the Swamp to give us the home-field advantage Texas A&M had today".

The Gators had 19 positives following Tuesday morning testing, a person familiar with the situation told the Associated Press.

"We have been in touch with officials at the University of Florida and have also reviewed the available data from the Kinexon contact tracing system deployed by the SEC", Bjork wrote.
