Alabama releases statement following reports that multiple Crimson Tide players have tested positive for coronavirus
If you missed the latest out of Tuscaloosa, multiple Alabama players have reportedly tested positive for the coronavirus upon their return to campus.
News of the positive tests has been reported by multiple outlets but was first shared by BamaInsider.
Here’s the information the Alabama Rivals outlet shared on Thursday:
Sources told BamaInsider on Thursday that as many as five Alabama players have tested positive for COVID-19 as the team reported back to campus this week. BamaInsider reached out to a university official for confirmation who was unable to confirm at this time, stating player privacy regulations.
Following this news, Alabama has released a statement, but unfortunately, the school didn’t really clear up much with this statement:
“The health and safety of our student-athletes is a top priority. Resources and protocols are in place to ensure they receive the best medical care when returning to campus. Due to privacy laws we cannot share information specific to the health of our student-athletes.”
Either way, whether the reports are accurate or not, don’t expect Alabama to share any specific or individual news when it comes to which players may or may not have tested positive upon their return to Tuscaloosa.
It may be up to the players to individual share that information or chose to keep it to themselves.
