University of North Carolina shuts down athletic programs through Thursday afternoon after COVID-19 spike
Just 48 hours after saying a COVID-19 outbreak on campus wouldn’t affect plans to play football this fall, the University of North Carolina has suspended all athletic activities through at least Thursday afternoon.
In addition, all recreational facilities on the Chapel Hill campus will be closed to students, coaches and staff.
“After consulting with our health experts and University leadership, we are taking this action to protect our students, coaches and staff,” UNC athletics director Bubba Cunningham said. “We want to make sure we continue to do everything we can to ensure that that our teams, campus and community remain healthy.”
