Florida releases updated COVID testing numbers, including new positives
Florida hasn’t played a game since Oct. 10 due to a COVID-19 outbreak within the program. It’s not the only school that’s been affected this year, as there have been numerous others that have had to postpone games for the same reason.
On Tuesday, the Gators released their updated testing numbers as they continue to try to get the situation under control upon their return to practice this week.
Here’s the data since student-athletes returned to Florida’s campus on May 26:
Total Tests on Campus: 2,720
Total Positives on Campus: 68
Total Tests for October: 1,347
Total Positives for October: 37
In last week’s update, the Gators had 31 positive tests in October, so that means there have been six new positives during that span. Things appear to be getting better, though, as Florida returned to practice Monday and got back to football activities.
Assuming all continues to go well, the Gators will play their first game in three weeks this Saturday. They’re set to host Missouri at 7:30 p.m. ET on SEC Network Alternate.
