We get a little insight into TCU’s strategies for preventing COVID from Patterson’s comments in this piece.

Patterson said they have tried to keep practice as normal as possible just with added precautions such as sanitizing every 10 minutes.

“I have probably said sanitize a thousand times more than I ever have in my whole life,” Patterson said. The team also has to be temperature checked before entering the building and each player and staff member gets tested three times a week.
