The Georgia Bulldogs football team is more than 90% vaccinated against COVID-19 and yet they’re still dealing with the very harsh reality of positive tests from players and staff members that are fully vaccinated against the virus.
On Saturday night, No. 5 Georgia played its opening game of the 2021 regular season in Charlotte against No. 3 Clemson. Georgia’s defense thoroughly dominated Clemson’s offensive line, sacking quarterback D.J. Uiagalelei seven times and held Clemson’s offense to just 180 total yards.
It was a massive victory for the Bulldogs, but it was different news on Monday that grabbed everyone’s attention.
The football program is dealing with a COVID outbreak, and the positive tests are coming back for players that are fully vaccinated.
“I’ll be honest with you, I’m as concerned as I’ve ever been, because we have three or four guys out with COVID and we have a couple staff members that have been out with COVID here recently,” head coach Kirby Smart said.
