CENTER, Mo. | Football practice was halted Friday afternoon at Mark Twain High School after a player tested positive for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
Cody McCann, the school's athletic director, said that the Ralls County Health Department informed Mark Twain leaders of the positive finding on Friday afternoon.
“The Health Department said that we need to quarantine our players and coaches for 14 days from the original exposure to COVID-19,” McCann said.
Because the exposure is estimated to have taken place on Monday (Aug. 10), the first day of practice, the players and coaches cannot gather as a team again until Aug. 25, according to Health Department guidelines.
McCann said the quarantine affects 24 players and three coaches.
“Basically, we have no way around this so we will follow the guidelines,” McCann said.
