Gators football paused after increase in players positive for COVID-19

The athletics director for the Florida Gators said in a statement the UF football team has experienced an increase in players testing positive for the coronavirus this week, so team activities were paused Tuesday.

According to the statement athletics director Scott Stricklin’s, “Head coach Dan Mullen has been in communication with football players and their parents, and I have had conversations with the Southeastern Conference office, last week’s opponent Texas A&M, and this week’s opponent LSU.”

Stricklin says this will be reevaluated by UF Health and the athletic department’s sports medicine staff Wednesday.
