LAWRENCEBURG, Ind. — The Lawrenceburg High School girls soccer team is now quarantining for 14 days after one player reportedly tested positive for coronavirus.

The school district sent letters home to families Tuesday announcing that JV and varsity players have been ordered to self-isolate by the Dearborn County Health Officer and state health department.

The team held practice Monday, according to the letter. Anyone who was at practice or otherwise in contact with the student who tested positive has also been notified by phone.

The team is now set to return on Sept. 8.

The Lawrenceburg Community Schools Corporation recommended that players get tested for coronavirus and keep schools informed about symptoms. If they test positive, the players would be allowed to return to school no sooner than 10 days after their symptoms appeared or the date of their test.

Lawrenceburg resumed classes earlier this month, allowing parents to choose between sending their children back to classrooms, learn online or do both through a hybrid learning model.
