FROM STAFF REPORTS
Iredell-Statesville Schools officials announced Monday that South Iredell High School football practice and conditioning has been cancelled for the week of August 3-7 after a player tested positive for COVID-19.
After consultation with the Iredell Health Department, I-SS officials determined that this week will be used to complete contact tracing to identify athletes and other individuals who have been in close contact with the positive case.
Parents of all students who have been in close contact with the athlete who has tested positive will be contacted individually. Students who have been in close contact (within six feet for 15 minutes or more) with the athlete will quarantine for 14 days from exposure.
For all other athletes, practice will resume on Monday, August 10.
