The William & Mary Tribe women’s basketball program has “paused all team activities” on Thursday due to COVID-19 protocols within the program, according to a Tribe Athletics news release.
“The Colonial Athletic Association announced that the Tribe’s upcoming games against Towson on Jan. 30-31 and at James Madison on Feb. 6-7, have been postponed,” according to the news release. “A decision on rescheduling the four postponed games will be made at a later date.”
It was not clear who in the program — players, athletic staff, or both — tested positive for the virus.
“Everyone is quarantined,” said Pete Clawson, spokesman for W&M Tribe Athletics.
Clawson said they found out about the positive tests results on Thursday morning and per NCAA Tier I guidelines the basketball teams’ student athletics, athletic trainers and coaches are currently isolated.
“The affected individuals are isolating for at least 10 days,” Clawson wrote in an email. “William & Mary is also working with close contacts of those individuals to arrange self-quarantine for 10 days; the university has a dedicated team of case managers that help students, faculty and staff navigate isolation and self-quarantine.”
“Visit the Path Forward website for more information about COVID-19 case management at William & Mary,” he added.
