Five Alabama Football Players Test Positive for COVID-19

Some of Alabama’s football players have chosen to come back to campus a few days before voluntary workouts for the SEC can begin. Unfortunately, according to 247Sports, five members of the Crimson Tide have tested positive for COVID-19. The names of those five players have not been disclosed.

The SEC announced last month that it will allow teams to begin voluntary offseason workouts on June 8th.

In the SEC’s proposal to bringing back players to campus, they did have procedures for players who have tested positive.

Student-athletes must be screened before arriving on campus within 72 hours of entering facilities and on a daily basis upon resumption of athletics activities. Players who test positive must be immediately isolated and the school will begin contact-tracing and following CDC and local health guidelines.

Earlier in the week, a few other schools such as Marshall and Oklahoma State had players test positive.

In this case, though, it will be interesting to see what follows after college football’s flagship program returned some positive cases.

    The 2020-21 college football season is officially over before it even begins

      No, the process is working as intended. Players show up, get tested and then isolated and contact tracing if they test positive. The season still might not happen, but it won’t be because a few players tested positive.

      Yep. It was fun hoping while it lasted. Oh well, back to horse racing.

    And most likely not one of them is even sick.

      However… and hang with me cause this gets real complicated. They can “transmit” this “contagious” disease to “other people” who may be “vulnerable” and those people could “die”. You see, they did research and it turns out that not everybody is a healthy teenager.

    All this for a strong strain of the flu. This is how herd immunity works. This country has reacted to this like a 4 year old child!

      It’s not a ” strong strain of the flu ” There is a vaccine for the flu. If you don’t take it, that’s on you

      You’re right it’s not ” strong strain of the flu ”….it’s even weaker. There will be a vaccine for it and anyone who takes it is a fool. Do your own research as to the ingredients of all vaccines and the effects on the human body. This has not been about the coronavirus, it’s about complete control.

      Yeah that flu vaccine really works, especially the years they come out with a “Hey, that flu vaccine that thousands/millions of you got? It turns out it only works on LAST year’s strain. Sorry!” statement.

    Let’s see…just this week…Marshall, Louisville, Iowa State, Oklahoma State and now Alabama. This is going to spiral out of control and some kid is going to die because of it.

    But hey, who cares, “gotta have the money right?” (Sarcasm implied)

      I can see you watch the mainstream news every chance you get.

      4ever… We get it, the earth is flat too right? This isn’t weaker than the flu, are you effing serious?!??

      MSM sucks but you are too extremel the other way. It’s somewhere in between both to be honest. It’s much deadlier than the flu. We have 5 months of data to go off of vs decades for the flu. I guess you can predict the future like trashburn

      BigBlueForever, I get it, when it’s something you don’t see on television then you throw out the tired “conspiracy theorist” label and mock people. Don’t be afraid to open your eyes and do your own research and learn the truth.

      While we are at it…..I cannot prove what shape the earth is and neither can anyone else that has not been to space, but I can tell you it has been misrepresented, maybe the earth is much larger than we’ve been told. Take a moment to look up NASA’s dimensions for the earth, look up the formula for determining the curvature, which using the mainstream science’s formula, is 8 inches per mile. Now explain to me why I can see the lights of an on coming car 50 miles away while driving across southern Texas.

      I’ve done plenty of research and I still think you’re a whacko

      For those of you (BigBlueForever) who only accept what you see on TV or read in the mainstream news, people dying with the coronavirus are dying from underlying causes, not from the coronvirus. Show me where people who reportedly died from coronavirus had no underlying health issues….only coronavirus. I don’t predict the future, I merely keep my eyes open and look at all the signs of what is coming, it’s much easier if you put down your smartphone for a while. I hope you are alive long enough to witness what I’ve been saying….and it won’t be that long.

    Just to be safe they should announce the cancellation of the entire football season. That’s preferable to it beginning and then being cancelled in midstream.

      Exactly. I appreciate the comments on the sports side, but geezus enough is enough on the crap about covid19…. The fact that you don’t wear a mask around others is all I needed to know about you. Means you’re a selfish person that only barred about themselves.
