Activities in NMSU’s Weight Training Center temporarily suspended, Six student athletes, sports staffer test positive for COVID-19

Officials with New Mexico State University announced Tuesday morning that activities at the university’s Coca-Cola Weight Training Center have been temporarily suspended.

The university made the decision at the recommendation of the University Athletics team doctor after six student-athletes and a sports performance staff member tested positive for COVID-19.

The university is working to identify other NMSU students and personnel who may have come in contact with those who tested positive. The facility will reopen after further testing can be completed.

University Athletics continues to operate under its COVID-19 plan, which was reviewed and approved by experts at the university and at the New Mexico’s Department of Health.
