Three confirmed cases of COVID-19 in a 14-day period in a classroom or team setting constitutes an outbreak, per public health protocols.

This effectively ends the football team’s 2020 season.

Contact tracing is underway for the new positive cases; however, players and coaches have been quarantined since Oct. 13. The quarantine was deemed necessary because players and coaches had prolonged, close contact during an Oct. 12 team meeting with an individual who later tested positive for COVID-19. Masks were not worn during the meeting.

Uintah High will work with football parents to find a way to honor the team’s 19 seniors.
