The University of Minnesota announced Tuesday seven of 170 Covid-19 tests given to student-athletes during the month of June came back positive.

The positive results came from multiple sports.

Seven positive results from 170 tests is a positive test rate of 4.1%.

Student-athletes testing positive enter a protocol which includes self-isolation. They will be monitored through regular, daily communication with the athletic training staff and additional testing and screening. They must be cleared by a team physician before returning to athletic activity.

The athletic department's e-mailed release says contact tracing will identify other individuals who were potentially exposed. They will be asked to quarantine to help prevent the spread of the virus.
