ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - The entire University of Michigan athletic department is pausing because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The state Department of Health and Human Services issued the mandate Saturday, with the school saying it follows positive COVID-19 tests for several individuals in the athletic department.

They had the new variant that transmits at a higher rate.

The entire department could be in quarantine for two weeks.

The 11th-ranked women’s basketball was set to play at home against Purdue on Sunday.

That was one of four athletic events the school had scheduled.
