TUCSON, Arizona — The Pac-12 conference will require student-athletes to be tested for COVID-19 on a weekly basis upon returning to campus. They will also undergo antibody testing.

Commissioner Larry Scott told 247 Sports that all schools will have similar guidelines. Student-athletes and staff are set to return in phases beginning on June 15th, with priority given to fall competitors.

Last week, UArizona athletic director Dave Heeke said that depending upon how things go, the plan is for schools compete in the fall.

The Pac-12 is the first major conference to announce uniform testing policies for a return to campus.
