Two individuals with the UCLA football program and three members of its athletics support staff tested positive for COVID-19, the university announced Friday in its weekly report on testing of athletes, coaches and athletic department staff.
Neither individual with the football program traveled with the team for Saturday’s game against Oregon, which is not in danger of being canceled, an athletics spokesperson told City News Service.
Anyone with a positive result immediately enters isolation for 10 days from the date of the test or until the verification of a false positive.
Anyone deemed to have been in close contact with someone who tested positive goes into quarantine for 14 days from the last date of contact.
Since UCLA Athletics began testing on June 22, 9,660 tests have been administered with 22 positives among players, coaches and staff, 0.23%.
UCLA does not release the names of individuals who have tested positive or specify their roles in their programs in an attempt to protect their privacy.
