Cougars suspended practices following positive test

Earlier last week, Campbell County’s Director of Schools, Jennifer Fields, annnounced a football player at Campbell County High School has tested positive for COVID 19.

As a result, all football, basketball, and cheerleading practices have been suspended for 14 days from last Saturday, July 17th. Five football practices scheduled during the time have been cancelled as a precaution.

Fields wrote: “All parents have been contacted and the positive athlete will not be able to return until cleared by a doctor. Coaches who have been in contact with the athlete will follow the same procedures as the athlete who tested positive. They must remain temperature free and symptom free for 72 hours once practice resumes.”

Basketball tryouts were rescheduled for July 27, 28 and 3o.

Players who were trying out must have proof of a physical and a signed COVID-19 release form.
