The Georgia State Panthers football team said Sunday that positive COVID-19 tests that forced the postponement of their Saturday game against Charlotte were because of “errors in reading the test results.”
The Panthers said players and staff were tested on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, with the first two rounds producing no positive results. The results from Thursday’s batch of tests came in Friday, before the team was scheduled to travel to Charlotte.
The test results that were read incorrectly prompted Georgia State “to postpone the game out of an abundance of caution,” the news release said.
A postponement date for the game against Charlotte has not been announced.
The news release also indicated the team will return to practice Monday as it prepares for its scheduled matchup Saturday against East Carolina.
