They will not be available for the trip
Cal Athletics announced that multiple football student-athletes are in the COVID Protocol and deemed out for their availability for the trip to Tucson. The number or names of players are currently unknown. You can read the full announcement below.
BERKELEY, CA –Multiple Cal football student-athletes are in COVID protocol and will not be available to play in Saturday's game at Arizona. All student-athletes traveling to Tucson will be tested and cleared prior to departing the Bay Area. Everyone within the Cal football program is compliant with UC Berkeley's COVID-19 vaccine requirements, and 99 percent of football student-athletes are fully vaccinated. Due to state and federal student privacy laws, Cal Athletics is not able to comment on the personal health of individual student-athletes.
"Our primary concern is for the health of our student-athletes, and we continue to monitor the situation closely," Cal Director of Athletics Jim Knowlton said. "As we know, this pandemic is not over. We need to respect it and understand that it can affect much of what we do every day. Even with 99 percent of our football student-athletes fully vaccinated, we have seen that breakthrough cases are still possible."
The Tucson curse strikes again!
At least they're presumably vaccinated and not just "immunized" like a certain alum. Hoping their symptoms are mild and they're back on the field quickly.
