Mountain West school announces closure of campus facilities amid 8 positive COVID-19 tests
Since college athletes have started returning to campuses across the country, positive COVID-19 tests have forced a few schools to hit pause on voluntary workouts.
First, it was Houston. Then, Kansas State had to suspend workouts for a couple of weeks due to positive tests. Now, a third school announced it is closing campus facilities.
Per Boise State reporter B.J. Rains, the school is closing facilities due to 8 positive or presumed positive tests over the last 2 days:

As Rains mentioned, the release from Boise State doesn’t mention athletes specifically, so we’ll see how football workouts are affected.
The closure will take place from June 23-28, per the release from the school.
