ALBANY — The UAlbany women’s basketball program has paused in-person team activities following a “presumptive positive test result for COVID-19 within the team’s Tier 1 personnel group,” the school’s athletic department announced Tuesday.

“Further testing and contact tracing are underway to determine the length of the pause and whether any additional measures are necessary,” the school’s press release stated.

The team’s games this weekend against Hartford are currently still on the team’s schedule.

UAlbany is 5-5 in America East Conference play and 6-8 overall. The team had a stretch of more than three weeks between its sixth and seventh games because of a program pause, but had played games on four consecutive weekends since that point.

The UAlbany men’s basketball program resumed practicing last week after a pause of its own. The men’s team is scheduled to play UMass Lowell this weekend.
