UVM Athletics will be on a two week pause. On Friday evening, Vermont stopped all on-campus athletic activity, including games, team practices, and individual workouts until Thursday, February 4.
UVM Athletics shared that the measure, which follows an increase in positive COVID-19 test results in the athletics program, is being taken to ensure the health and safety of all student-athletes, coaches and staff.
The Catamounts have had multiple teams pause team activity and postpone games this season. This week alone six games were postponed due to COVID-19.
