Douglass High School Football Coach Positive For COVID-19

Jun 24, 2020

Oklahoma City Public Schools announced Tuesday that a coach at Douglass High School tested positive for COVID-19.

The district is advising all football coaches and players at the school to self-quarantine for two weeks after a coach tested positive for the coronavirus.

Currently, high school athletes have been allowed to work out in small groups to avoid potential exposure in Oklahoma City. The measure is meant to keep students and staff from getting sick.

However, there is no statewide standard protecting high school athletes from the coronavirus. Last month, the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association board of directors voted to reject a set of rules for schools to follow while reopening.
