Illini Sports Beat Writer Weighs In On Coronavirus Impacts on Return to Sports

Keeping athletes healthy by following the basic protocols is how the return to sports in college is going to work.


That's according to Bob Asmussen who follows Illinois sports for the Champaign News-Gazette and illinihq.com. He indicates a return to sports in Champaign can be successful by following the most basic protocols.



There is concern around the college football community about the transmission of this virus because of the constant contact nature of the sport. Asmussen says college football is going to give the season a try but does not get the sense there's any sense of the season getting canceled.



Asmussen says the best thing for the athletes is for them to be on campus with the top-of-the-line medical facilities and a controlled environment rather than any issues they may encounter at their homes.
