Louisiana Tech football player tests positive for COVID-19

Louisiana Tech officials say a football player has tested positive for COVID19 and that he and some of his teammates have been instructed to selfquarantine for two weeks.

School officials say contact tracing helped officials identify additional football players who could have been exposed.

Louisiana Tech has not released the names of the players being required to quarantine and has not specified how many players were identified for possible exposure.

The Bulldogs reported to campus in Ruston, Louisiana, on June 1 for physicals and medical testing. They began onfield conditioning during the past week and are scheduled to begin weight training this week.
