Notre Dame announced five football players have tested positive in two rounds of coronavirus testing this week.

The athletic department said the football program decided to test twice this week in light of the university's decision Tuesday to move to remote learning because of a COVID-19 outbreak on campus. A total of 232 tests were done.

The five players who tested positive are in isolation. Through contact tracing, six other players have been placed in quarantine.

The football team has conducted 851 coronavirus tests since June 18, with nine positive results.
The Fighting Irish did not practice for a second straight day. Another round of testing is set for Friday. The team said practices would resume based on the recommendation of the medical staff.
