The Latest on the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on sports around the world:

Duke is taking additional steps to prevent the spread of the coronavirus during fall sports. That includes daily testing of athletes, coaches and staff in football, soccer, volleyball and field hockey.

University President Vincent E. Price announced those steps Friday, with the daily testing focusing on the sports considered to be of higher transmission risk for transmission by the Atlantic Coast Conference’s medical advisory group.

The school will require athletes in those sports to sequester in designated residential areas after competitions until cleared to return to the campus community through testing and monitoring.

Price says teams will all travel by charter bus or plane and will ideally leave and return to campus on the same day.

The school had previously announced that it will begin the football and fall sports seasons with no fans at home competitions.
