Ohio State paused all voluntary campus workouts Wednesday following its most recent COVID-19 test results.

In addition to the Buckeyes' football team, the sports affected include men's and women's basketball, field hockey, men's and women's soccer and women's volleyball.

The school did not provide the number of positive tests or any other details, citing privacy concerns.

"It could lead to the identification of specific individuals and compromise their medical privacy," read a statement from the university's athletic department.

Ohio State started voluntary summer workouts on its Columbus campus on June 8.

The football team, coming off a 13-1 season and No. 3 final ranking in 2019, is scheduled to open the season at home on Sept. 5 against Bowling Green.
