There are currently no active cases of COVID-19 among Clemson student-athletes and zero athletes or staff in isolation, the school announced at its board of trustees meeting Friday, according to The Athletic's Grace Raynor.

The news comes nearly a month after 14 players on the Tigers football team tested positive, bringing the team's total cases to 37 and the school's to 43.

Clemson conducted 800-plus tests on students, staff, and coaches, athletic director Dan Radakovich said, per David Hood of TigerNet. The next round of testing is scheduled for Aug. 3.

Radakovich added that football players will continue to be tested weekly in hopes of mitigating risk for the upcoming college football campaign, according to Raynor.

Gov. Henry McMaster said earlier in July that he won't allow college or high school football to be played in South Carolina if the number of coronavirus infections continues to increase quickly in the state.

A recent survey of Clemson season-ticket holders determined that 83% would be "comfortable" attending games with social distancing measures in place, according to Hood.
