USC women’s basketball pauses activities due to positive COVID-19 test – Press Enterprise
The USC women’s basketball team has paused all activities after one student-athlete on the roster tested positive for COVID-19, USC announced on Monday. After performing contact tracing and consulting with the Los Angeles County public health department, it was determined that all student-athletes on the team needed to be put into quarantine.
USC reported two total positive tests since it last announced numbers on Oct. 30. The other team that had a positive test was not revealed, but contact tracing did not require for that team to shut down activities.
The women’s basketball team is the third USC team that has had to halt activities due to positive tests. Football and men’s water polo stopped activities in late August due to off-campus spread of COVID-19 within the teams.
USC women’s basketball is scheduled to open the season on Nov. 25 against Loyola Marymount at the Galen Center.
