Texas reported on Thursday that 13 players have tested positive for COVID-19 and Houston shut down its preseason conditioning after six players recorded symptomatic positive tests. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has swept across the world since the beginning of January, killing more than 450,000 people and infecting more than 8.5 million. It has caused the cancelation of college football spring practices, the NCAA men's and women's basketball tournaments and other major sporting events. It also interrupted NBA and NHL seasons, delayed the start of the MLB season and postponed The Masters and Kentucky Derby to the fall.
