New Mexico State University will continue its temporary suspension of student-athlete workouts as additional COVID-19 test results are gathered.
Last week, the university suspended workouts at the recommendation of the University Athletics team doctor after six student-athletes and a sports performance staff member tested positive for the virus.
Additional tests have resulted in 135 negative cases, 20 positive cases and seven others are still awaiting their results. The cases affect multiple sports.
Workouts and other team activities will resume once medical personnel give approval.
