MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — A second West Virginia University football player has tested positive for the coronavirus.

The school’s athletic department said Saturday that the person will self-isolate for 14 days.

An investigation identified additional football players who have come into contact with the athlete and those people will also self-quarantine as a safety precaution, the college said.

The school reported the first virus case among its football players on June 15, the first day of voluntary workouts. The athletic department says it is following federal safety guidelines.
