Clemson athletics reported no positive COVID-19 tests from athletes this week and four total in the athletic department out of 1,721 PCR tests from Nov. 27 to Dec. 3.

Since June 1, Clemson reports athletes and athletic staff having completed 19,875 COVID-19 PCR tests, with 216 positive results (166 student-athletes, 50 staff), 1.1% positive, and no hospitalizations.

Clemson's Pickens County has the highest incidence rate in the state (915 per 100,000) with an average of 92.7 cases per over the last seven days.
