A ruling from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services required the Wolverines to immediately pause athletic activities in all sports, including games and practices, "until further notice and up to 14 days".

The order will begin Friday and affect all sports, including football and teams now in season like basketball and men's ice hockey.
