Report: Majority of LSU position group in COVID-19 quarantine
LSU practice (if the Tigers are able to hold practice with Hurricane Laura nearing Louisiana) is going to look different for at least the next 10 days. According to a report by The Advocate, all but 4 offensive linemen are in quarantine due to COVID-19 exposure.
The report by Wilson Alexander and Brooks Kubena does not detail how many players tested positive and how many are in quarantine for exposure to someone who tested positive. Player quarantines from close contact in practices and games figure to be an issue most teams playing this fall will be dealing with from now until the end of the season.
As The Advocate article notes, players who have tested positive must quarantine for at least 10 days while those with “high-risk contact” are quarantined for 14 days. Players who have tested positive must have no symptoms for at least 24 hours before returning to practice. The NCAA defines “high-risk contact” as more than 15 minutes less than 6 feet apart with an infected person.
LSU has practiced in full pads for the last 2 days.
