The Kansas State football team went more a month without recording a single positive COVID-19 test, until now.

On Friday afternoon, Kenny Lannou, executive associate athletic director for communications, said the team had seven positive coronavirus tests in the latest round of testing. The active cases are the first confirmed positives since July 13 when K-State Athletics announced 29 athletes tested positive.

All seven of the latest positives are active. No names were released.

As of now, practice will continue normally and the season opener against Arkansas State on Sept. 12 will continue as scheduled.

Earlier in the summer, the Wildcats saw 14 players come down with the virus, which prompted the athletic department to shut down workouts for 14 days, just five days after workouts began.
