By The Associated Press

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Clemson said 14 more football players tested positive for the coronavirus this week, bringing the team total to 37 members who have had the disease since the school reopened facilities for workouts earlier this month.

Clemson said Friday it has conducted 430 tests of its personnel with 47 coming up with COVID-19. It said that 28 of those have completed a 10-day isolation period.

No one has been hospitalized for the virus, athletic spokesman Jeff Kallin said.

Clemson is isolating the recent players who tested positive tests for at least 10 days. Close contacts for those players or staffers have been advised to self-quarantine for at least two weeks.

There have been 43 athletes and four staff members among all sports who've tested positive.

Dr. Joan Duwve, Director of Public Health at the Department of Health and Environmental Control, said South Carolina is now a hot spot in the United States.

On Friday, DHEC announced the second-highest amount virus cases since the outbreak began with 1,273 cases.
