UW pauses all team-related activity due to increase in positive COVID-19 tests

SEATTLE, Wash. — The University of Washington football team has put a pause on all team-related activities due to an increase in positive COVID-19 tests.

UW Assistant Athletic Director Jeff Bechthold made the announcement in a letter Wednesday morning.

The Pac-12 Championship game is currently scheduled for December 18, which means this is the final weekend available for regular season games.

The team will not hold practice Wednesday. Instead, players and coaching staff will undergo more testing.

This is a developing story.
