Another high school football game has been postponed due to positive COVID-19 cases.
Friday’s game between Viewmont and Farmington was postponed Monday after several people in Viewmont’s football program tested positive for the coronavirus, Davis School District spokesperson Christopher Williams told The Salt Lake Tribune. The team will undergo a two-week quarantine, which means its game against Bountiful on Oct. 2 is also postponed.
The postponements came just one day after Skyline and Brighton had to postpone their Friday game due to four positive cases on the Eagles.
Four football games have now been postponed since the start of the 2020 high school season. The first was between Weber and Bingham, a matchup that would’ve opened both their season. The other was a game between Provo and Timpview.
Corner Canyon High School had to close Tuesday due to a large amount of coronavirus cases and the school will shift to virtual learning. But that shift, Canyons School District spokesperson Kirsten Stewart said, won’t impact sports.
Corner Canyon, however, will limit spectators at football and soccer games by half, and only family members will be allowed to purchase a limited number of tickets. No student sections will be allowed at games.
