The Texas A&M University-Texarkana Athletics Department has quarantined three of the university’s intercollegiate athletic teams after a player on each team tested positive for COVID-19 over the weekend.
The TAMUT women’s soccer team, women’s basketball team, and men’s basketball team each had one player report a positive COVID-19 test. As a result, each team is in a 14-day quarantine period to quell the potential spread in the event other players were exposed.
All games that were scheduled within the quarantine period have been cancelled.
Texas A&M University-Texarkana offers free on-site COVID-19 testing for students, faculty, and staff. The additional members of all three athletic teams will be tested to ensure there is no additional spread within each team.
Texas A&M University-Texarkana competes as a member of the NAIA’s Red River Athletic Conference.
