    Tech, in cooperation with the Putnam County Health Department, has completed the testing of its football team for the COVID-19 virus. The football student-athletes returned as a team to the Tech athletic facilities on July 12, and testing began the next day. No team workouts have been held.

    Tech’s Athletic Department followed a protocol consistent with the Ohio Valley Conference and NCAA guidance to establish safety practices and test athletes, coaches and staff. 

    Some student-athletes and staff received positive tests and are under quarantine. The university conducted contact tracing and notified anyone who was in close contact by CDC standards.
