UW welcoming back athletes

The University of Wisconsin is opening itself again for preseason workouts for some of their athletes.


A Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel report says the school's football and volleyball teams will allow its athletes to return for voluntary workouts beginning on June 15th. A number of precautions will be taking place such as limiting the number of athletes per room, requiring masks, and taking daily temperature checks. If a student-athlete shows symptoms, they will have to go into self-quarantine for at least 72 hours after receiving a negative test result. If all goes well, basketball and hockey players will be the next athletes to return to campus with an expected date near the end of June. As of right now, the first volleyball match for the Badgers is still unknown according to the athletic department's website while the football team is set to host Indiana on September 4th.
