Three University of Louisiana athletes have tested positive for coronavirus while seven others are in quarantine after possibly being exposed to the virus, that according to a statement by the school.

UL is the second school in Louisiana to report positive cases among athletes. Earlier on Saturday, LSU reported several of its football players tested positive with a total of 30 players in quarantine.

As is common due to privacy laws, UL did not release the names of any of the student-athletes nor did they say how many athletes played for which teams.

Voluntary in-person workouts began for the Ragin' Cajuns back on June 8.

This news comes on the heels of the state seeing overall case numbers higher than we've seen in a while. On Saturday, there were 870 new COVID-19 cases. That was the most since April 10 (970).

It was also the first time that the state has reported more than 700 cases for four days in a row, something that hasn't happened since April.
