OSU Athletics Coronavirus Cases Up from Last Week

There are 19 active cases of COVID-19 in OSU’s athletic teams.



The Oklahoma State football team is up to seven active cases of COVID-19.

According to an athletic department release, the Cowboys are up five cases from the two they had last week.

There are 19 cases active throughout the university’s athletic teams, with soccer having one, cross-country having none and “all other sports” having 11.

That 19 number is up 14 cases from a week ago, as last week there were only five active cases within the all of OSU’s teams. Since testing started on June 1, OSU athletics has had 101 people test positive for the virus, but again, only 19 of those are still active.

Here is how active cases have fared since OSU started releasing its numbers three weeks ago.

OSU’s football roster has 130 players on it, so, if all seven active cases are players, about 5.4 percent of the roster has COVID-19.

At his media teleconference Monday, OSU football coach Mike Gundy praised the work of his medical task force and how they’ve handled containing the virus to this point.

“I would also add that this group of medical people, our medical staff, Doc [Val Gene] Iven and Scott Parker and John Stemm and their staff have clearly been the top,” Gundy said. “They’ve been the best in the country in handling this situation, and the plan that we’ve had by bringing them in really early and going through the format and learning as we go, I just can’t imagine that anybody in the country has been better than us, and that’s now starting to show. That gives me a lot of confidence based on where we’re at right now. They just had a fantastic plan, and it’s worked from Day 1.”
