ST. BONAVENTURE, NY (WKBW) — Teams all around the country continue to be impacted by COVID-19, and it's officially hit St. Bonaventure.

The men's basketball program has paused all team activities following a positive COVID-19 test result within the team's Tier 1 personnel. Tier 1 members are defined as student-athletes, coaches, team managers, and support staff.

In a press release the school said, the well-being of student-athletes and staff remains the paramount concern for everyone in our campus community and the Department of Athletics and St. Bonaventure University will continue to follow all guidelines and safety protocols provided by the NCAA, Atlantic 10 and Cattaraugus County Health Department officials.

Because of the positive test, the Bonnies will not participate in the Mohegan Sun "Bubbleville" games later this month in Connecticut. The Bonnies were scheduled to play three games from November 25th-27th.
