PERRY, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Perry High School’s varsity football activities are suspended until September 26.
That’s according to a news release sent by the school district Wednesday, which said the decision was made after a varsity football player tested positive for COVID-19.
“The safety of students and employees in the district’s number one priority,” the release said. “The impacted area will undergo deep cleaning and disinfecting prior to further use.”
What to expect
Perry, which lost to Houston County 17-10 on September 4 and lost to Harris County 14-10 on September 11, will cancel two games—including an away game this Friday against Hampton.
The Panthers’ September 25 home game against Veterans is also canceled, according to the release.
