New Mexico State extends suspension of athlete workouts

New Mexico

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico State says it will continue its temporary suspension of student-athlete workouts as it waits for more COVID-19 testing results.

The college said this week the suspension will remain after six student-athletes and a sports performance staff member tested positive for the virus last week.

Additional tests have resulted in 135 negative cases, 20 positive cases, and seven others are still awaiting their results.

The cases affect multiple sports.

Workouts and other team activities will resume once medical personnel approves.
