USC has basically shut down and sent people home today after the news of a player testing positive for the coronavirus.
USC was supposed to have offensive coordinator Graham Harrell and two players at a press conference this morning. That was scrapped and the Trojans will not do any football activities today.
The player is symptomatic. No other players have tested positive.
There will now be contact tracing, including the seating arrangements on the flight from L.A. to Salt Lake City, to see who else might be exposed to the virus.
UCLA and Cal had a player test positive before games this season and the games were played. But what happens this week depends on the results of the contact tracing.
- The kickoff for next week’s Washington State game has been moved from 6:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. in order to comply with the 10 p.m. curfew that will be in effect in Los Angeles County.
