“Many of our student athletes in those sports will start arriving back on campus next week,” Yurachek added. “They’ll go through a robust physical examination next week and have to be cleared to participate in any activity starting on June 8th. We’ll shut down all of our facilities on Thursday & Friday of this week, and they’ll go through a very extreme disinfectant and sanitation process in preparation for our student athletes to return.”
