PSU football reports Monday

UNIVERSITY PARK — Penn State football players are returning to campus Monday.

The university announced Thursday night it will begin a phased approach to return to campus beginning with 75 players along with other student groups who may also require access to specialized facilities.

Following CDC and local government guidelines, as well as tracking and implementing recommendations coming from the NCAA Sport Science Institute and the Big Ten Conference’s task force for Emerging Infectious Disease, the Penn State sports performance team developed in-depth protocols for the student-athletes and staff.

Student-athletes have begun a prescribed quarantine in preparation for their return to campus and will be tested and quarantined upon their return. Those student-athletes who are medically cleared may then participate in voluntary on-campus workouts beginning June 15. The workouts will be limited in size (groups of less than 20 student-athletes) and will be supervised by Penn State’s performance enhancement and sports medicine staffs.

Return times for additional Nittany Lion student-athletes will be announced at a later date.
