On Thursday, it was announced that multiple members of the Ole Miss baseball team had tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
The team announced a suspension of all team activities through October 8.
Head coach Mike Bianco also released a statement on the matter.
“Player safety is priority number one for our program, and we will take all the necessary measures to return these players to full health. We have worked hard this fall not only to improve as a team but also follow safety guidelines in our facility. This two week break will provide us an opportunity to evaluate our team protocols to ensure that we are doing everything we can to be safe while reinforcing with our players to be mindful of their personal activities on and off campus.“
