RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina State University reported it has identified a cluster of COVID-19 cases associated with its athletics department.

The school made the announcement on its website Wednesday. They did not say how many people tested positive. A “cluster” is defined by the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services as five or more cases in close proximity.

Wolfpack athletics says those who tested positive are being isolated and quarantined. WRAL-TV reports the women’s basketball team recently postponed a game due to concerns about the virus. It’s not clear if the cluster was within that team.
