Texas announces 13 football players test positive for COVID-19

The University of Texas announced Thursday it has 13 football players — including two reported last week — who have tested positive for COVID-19.

All 13 players are in self-isolation and through contact tracing, 10 more players are in self-quarantine, the school said. Those 10 are all asymptomatic at this time, per the athletic department.

In addition, four UT players have tested positive for the COVID-19 antibody.

The first wave of players returned to campus last week for voluntary workouts, with the aforementioned two positive COVID-19 tests and another testing positive for the antibody and two tested positive for COVID-19 and another tested positive for the antibody.

On Wednesday, a University of Houston basketball player tested positive for COVID-19 days after UH shut down voluntary workouts after six athletes tested positive for the coronavirus. Earlier this week, Baylor announced that three student-athletes had tested positive for COVID-19.
