“Student-athletes who tested positive for COVID-19 were immediately placed in isolation for 14 days in accordance with CDC, state and local guidelines and the University’s Quarantine and Isolation Protocol. All student-athletes, who may have been exposed by way of shared common spaces, were also self-quarantined as a precautionary measure until they could safely return home,” the statement reads.
Following the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference suspending the fall sports season, Morgan State has ended all voluntary workouts and is sending student-athletes home.
