According to sources, at least five players have tested positive as voluntary in-person workouts were to start on Monday, June 8. Athletic director Greg Byrne released this statement...
quote:

“The health and safety of everyone, including our student-athletes, coaches, staff and fans has been, and will continue to be at the forefront as we prepare to return,” Byrne said. “We appreciate the leadership and guidance of the Southeastern Conference and its Return to Activity and Medical Guidance Task Force throughout this situation to best equip our campuses with educational materials and recommendations on best practices.

“Resumption of voluntary in-person activity is an important step in moving us towards the fall athletic season, which we are fully preparing for with a phased approach beginning June 8. In addition to our public health officials, we are fortunate to have an elite sports medicine staff here at Alabama, from our athletic trainers to our team doctors that we will continue to take direction from as we make decisions for a safe return.

“We look forward to welcoming back our student-athletes, coaches and staff to campus.”

And none were sick. Quarantine them until they test negative a few times in a row.

Are they sure they used the right test? Maybe they confused drug test with Covid

There will be plenty of football this year. You need to lay down and stop hyperventilating.
