Per Weiszer, in a recent ESPN podcast, Kirby Smart had this to say about COVID-19:
While Georgia has not released any data on any positive COVID-19 tests for football players, Smart indicated there has been some.
“We’re getting up to date information, day to day,” Smart said. “We do a great job of communicating who all has been involved. We’ve got guys over weekends that may have gone somewhere or been exposed. Contact tracing has worked really well as far as protecting guys. We’ve got a set of protocols that we follow.”
Smart said previously that if a player tested positive during workouts, that contact tracing will be used. The player also would be isolated.
He said keeping those in the “inner bubble,” including coaches and staff safe is a priority.
Smart praised Georgia director of sports medicine Ron Courson and staff.
“This recent spike in numbers, I do think that our staff has done a tremendous job,” Smart said.
Honestly, I would have been surprised if he had said there were no cases. I’m sure they’re on the mother. Let’s hope that’s enough.
