Iowa has paused its men’s basketball workouts for 14 days after two players tested positive for COVID-19, the school announced Tuesday.

 

Iowa’s protocol requires individuals who test positive to be in isolation and for people who might have been exposed to someone with the virus to be quarantined.

 

Last week, Michigan State suspended football workouts and players began a 14-day quarantine after a staff member and player tested positive.

 

 

Ohio State will limit home crowds to about 20,000 and prohibit tailgating if the football season is played this fall.

 

Fans inside Ohio Stadium will be required to wear masks and observe social distancing to help stem the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. Concessions will be limited.

 

The traditional “Skull Session” pregame pep rallies at St. John’s Arena will not be held.

 

Athletic director Gene Smith informed season-ticket holders of the new rules in a letter Tuesday, first reported by Cleveland.com.

 

The guidelines limit capacity of the 105,000-seat stadium to 20%.
