The PGA Tour revised its health and safety policy to allow players who continue to test positive for COVID-19 after isolating for 10 days and being symptom-free for 72 hours to return to full competition, according to Golf Channel's Rex Hoggard.

Previously, players who met that criteria after testing positive for the virus were allowed to resume competing, but they were required to play while isolated together, or as a single on weekends.

Now, any player who isolates for 10 days after testing positive and is showing no signs of symptoms will get full access to the clubhouse, locker room, and fitness facilities.

Dylan Frittelli, Nick Watney, Harris English, and Denny McCarthy were among the players that the old rules affected.

It's unknown if the same new rules will apply for next week's PGA Championship. Frittelli and English are both set to play in that event.
