The Woody Hayes Athletic Center has reopened for individual and small-group work after the football program issued a COVID-19-related pause on Tuesday.

Ohio State partially lifted its COVID-19-caused pause on football activities on Friday, allowing for individual and small-group workouts.

Only players who have not had a positive COVID test are able to return.

A one-week pause was issued on Tuesday after a rise in COVID cases in the program. Testing results since then have been sufficiently encouraging to end the pause early.

Ohio State's spring practice is scheduled to begin March 19.
