UConn football suspends team activities after six players test positive for COVID-19

Six UConn Huskies football players have tested positive for the new coronavirus, leading the school to suspend all team activities on Thursday.

UConn canceled its football season this month, but the team still had been practicing on Tuesdays and Thursdays and doing weight training on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

The school said other athletes who were in contact with the six players also have been placed in quarantine.

It was not immediately clear if any of the infected football players were reflected in the 11 positive tests the university reported Wednesday among the entire student body.
