The NHL has released a statement reporting that 15 players tested positive for COVID-19 after reporting to training camp. More than 1,450 total tests were administered to the 250+ players in camp. These tests have all been administered following the start of Phase 2 of the return to play initiative, which began on June 8. © Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports The NHL is going to have to determine how many positive tests for coronavirus would be considered an outbreak, as 15 players tested positive after reporting to training camp. What’s more, 11 additional players have tested positive for coronavirus outside of NHL training camps.
The number includes 23 football players, two members of Clemson’s football staff and three student-athletes from other sports, according to a school spokesperson.
Clemson originally administered 169 tests to its student-athletes and staff, with three of those coming back positive. The additional tests were done because anyone displaying symptoms is tested, and known contacts are also tested.
The release from the school came five days after a peaceful protest was held in downtown Clemson with several football players organizing the event. It is estimated that 3,000 people attended the gathering.
The majority of the cases are asymptomatic and none have required hospitalization, according to the school.
Players who are healthy and have not tested positive or had known contact are continuing to participate in workouts, a school spokesperson said.
