Any student that will be bringing a saliva sample will be able to deposit it at Door 4 as well when they arrive. They may leave practice using Doors 4, 11, or 12. Participants must come to campus for temperature and symptom checks prior to going to practice. Transportation to practice will be provided for those who need it however, athletes must provide their own transportation home after practice.
