Carolina football players will begin returning to campus on June 12 and will return in four separate groups through July 1. Athletes in several sports are scheduled to return over the summer.
“We do not yet know how many fans we may be able to welcome to competitions,” Athletics Director Bubba Cunningham said in the release of the athletics portion of the University’s “roadmap” for return to campus. “We are planning for our sports teams to compete — with numerous safety precautions in place.”
All athletes, coaches and staff members will be tested for COVID-19 at least twice — once when they arrive and again seven to eight days later. Team members will be housed together, on and off campus.
Beginning June 1, the department’s facilities will be cleaned and prepared for the return of players and coaches. Athletes have been told to self-quarantine or wear a mask in public and social distance for at least a week prior to returning to campus.
Coaches and staff who test positive for COVID-19 will be required to quarantine at home or another approved location. Athletes who test positive will be required to quarantine in a campus residence hall specified by the University or at their permanent residence.
