LEBANON, Ohio — Lebanon City School District officials suspended their 7-12 football program Monday morning after a player and coach tested positive for COVID-19 over the weekend.
Lebanon Superintendent Todd Yohey said after contact tracing was completed Monday, it was determined that several other players and coaches were exposed to the virus as well. This prompted the suspension of the program.
All the people who were exposed are now quarantining, according to Yohey.
While no exact timeline was given as to when the program would resume, Yohey said, the team "is expected to resume practice prior to the first football game" which is scheduled to be held on Aug. 28.
