UGA football staffer applauded after coronavirus recovery

247 Sports

A month ago, news came out that a member of Georgia's Athletics Department had tested positive for COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) after having last been on Georgia's campus on March 6. On Thursday, that employee, football video coordinator Jeremy Klawsky, was released from Piedmont Athens Regional Hospital. Per WSB's Zach Klein, Georgia head coach Kirby Smart and athletic director Greg McGarity were there to cheer Klawsky on during his release.

At one point during hospitalization, Klawsky was incubated in ICU, the first patient with the coronavirus strain at Piedmont to require that. Below is the statement from the hospital regarding his release.

"This is what victory looks like. This is what hope looks like."

Georgia sports information also released a statement shortly after the video was posted.
