Big 12 Adjusts Covid Protocols, Return To Play Parameters

Effective immediately, the Big 12 Conference has adjusted its COVID 19 medical protocols in the following areas:

Isolation – Regardless of vaccination status, individuals with a confirmed positive test must be isolated for five days. A negative test anywhere between days 6 to 10 allows for the return to activity.

Quarantine – Individuals who are up-to-date on vaccination status (boosted or within 5 months of Moderna/Pfizer series, or 2 months of Johnson & Johnson), or have had a positive test within the previous 90 days are exempt from quarantine. All other individuals must quarantine five days and must test negative before being permitted to resume team functions.

Surveillance Testing – Weekly testing continues for unvaccinated individuals. However, unvaccinated individuals with a previous positive return to surveillance testing after 90 days, instead of 180.

“I applaud the work and thorough considerations of the Big 12 medical advisors,” commented Commissioner Bob Bowlsby. “The spread of the omicron variant requires that we continue to remain vigilant in our approach to combatting the virus, and rely on the advice of our medical experts for guidance.”
