FOREST CITY – As continued steps are taken to maintain a healthy environment within the Waldorf University community, the decision has been made to cancel the following men’s soccer games due to three players testing positive for COVID-19;
Sept. 14 vs. Dakota Wesleyan
Sept. 16 vs. Northwestern
Sept. 19 vs. Dordt

The university’s primary concern is and will continue to be, maintaining a proactive approach in overcoming the possible spread of the COVID virus within the Waldorf University campus population and the surrounding community.

“We are proud of our players for the steps they are taking in being transparent with any health concerns they may have,” said Waldorf University Director of Athletics Chad Gassman. “As a small university, we are in a prime position to continue competition in all sports with only minor inconveniences such as this. These decisions are never easy because we understand how hard these players work, but ultimately we must stay focused to allow regular competition to continue by occasionally stepping away from the field to ensure the health of those players.”

Regular competition for men’s soccer is scheduled to continue beginning Oct. 3 vs. Mount Marty. All other sports programs are currently unaffected and will maintain their current competition schedules.

The university has provided the opportunity for testing to all campus members.

Testing results as of September 14, 2020:
29 positive test results
16 recovered
13 remain active
