Seven Michigan State student-athletes tested positive for COVID-19, out of 127 tested July 30-31, the university's athletic department said in a statement Monday.

Fifty staff members also were tested as well, with all results coming back negative.

Twelve MSU student-athletes tested positive for COVID-19 in the latest round of testing.

MSU athletics says the seven student-athletes are in quarantine, and will continue to have daily check-ins with athletic training staff while in isolation, with additional services available by medical and administrative staff.

The football team is isolating while under a 14-day quarantine that started July 22 and is scheduled to run through Aug. 4.

Since the start of June, MSU athletics has conducted 651 tests on student-athletes, with 30 positive results. More than 150 tests have been conducted on staff members both on and off-campus, with five positive results.
