Rutgers Football COVID-19 Outbreak Linked to Campus Party


A campus party at Rutgers attended by several athletes may have led to the coronavirus outbreak that has forced the entire team into a two-week quarantine, reported Wednesday.Fifteen Rutgers football players have tested positive for COVID-19, according to Judith Persichilli, New Jersey’s health commissioner.

Persichilli told a news briefing in Trenton on Wednesday that there have been “several circumstances where indoor and outdoor gatherings in our state have led to community clusters of COVID-19.” She included the party at Rutgers as one of the many gatherings that led to coronavirus outbreaks.

A spokesperson for Rutgers did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
