The NCAA Doesn’t Have Uniform Coronavirus Testing Guidelines, Which Doesn’t Seem Smart

The Big Lead

One might find it surprising that the NCAA, with its gigantic, complicated web of rules and regulations that even the colleges under its umbrella have trouble understanding, will not require anything of each university when it comes to coronavirus testing. But that is the reality, as Will Hobson over at the Washington Post wrote on Friday. The NCAA only has "recommended" guidelines for testing college athletes for COVID-19, but leaves the particulars up to each school's discretion.

That doesn't seem great, does it? In Hobson's story, he contrasted the testing strategies of Notre Dame (testing athletes every week) versus that of Arkansas (testing only if symptoms are shown or a player has been near someone who tested positive).
