SEC releases ‘Initial Medical Protocols for Fall Sports’


BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – The LSU Tigers are going to defend their national championship under unusual circumstances.

Nothing is normal during the coronavirus pandemic and the upcoming SEC football season is no different.

With that in mind, the SEC has come out with their ‘Initial Medical Protocols for Fall Sports.’

The ‘Initial Medical Protocols for Fall Sports’ includes these items:

  • Testing requirements
  • Procedures for infections and contact tracing
  • Protocols for quarantine and isolation

“Our Medical Task Force is producing an effective strategy for testing and monitoring, which complements the vigilant day-to-day efforts of our campuses to establish and maintain healthy environments in which our student-athletes can train and compete,” said SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey.  “Our health experts have guided us though each stage of preparation for the safe return of activity and, together with the medical staffs embedded within our athletics programs, we will continue to monitor developments around the virus and evolve our plan to meet the health needs of our student-athletes.”
