In a statement Wednesday, the school said 117 student athletes from the football program received testing on Monday. Of those 117 tests, two came back with positive results for coronavirus.
One of the athletes was mildly symptomatic and the other was showing no symptoms. Both students are in isolation and their families have been notified. Seven other athletes are in quarantine as well due to contact tracing.
Forty-three staff members associated with the team were also tested, and all tested negative.
Notre Dame has administered a total of 619 tests to members of the football program, with four positive results.
