Four MSU players test positive for COVID-19


The inevitable has happened at Mississippi State. According to the Clarion Ledger, four football players have tested positive for the coronavirus out of about 100 student-athletes that were tested.

The names of those players haven’t been released, but those players have to self-quarantine for 14 days and can’t resume team activities until that duration has passed even though all four were deemed asymptomatic.
