Herriman High football staff member has COVID-19; team quarantined

The high school football season is scheduled to start on time in Utah. But that doesn’t mean COVID-19 hasn’t affected any teams.

A staff member for Herriman High’s football team tested positive for the novel coronavirus, the Jordan School District announced Monday. It’s the first documented case of COVID-19 in Utah high school athletics in the state.

Dr. Dagmar Vitek, medical officer for the Salt Lake County Health Department, said those associated with the team will undergo a quarantine.

“After investigating the circumstances, we have determined that it is necessary to quarantine all practice/conditioning staff and participants through July 7, 2020,” Vitek said in a statement.

Herriman is scheduled to host Davis on Aug. 13 to open the season.

“Since the UHSAA does not have jurisdiction over high school sports durning the summer months, we would not have any specific statements at this time,” Brenan Jackson, UHSAA assistant director, said. “We just encourage schools and districts to follow their district, county health and state agencies for appropriate action plans during the summer months.”
