Bartlesville high school football player tests positive for COVID-19

BARTLESVILLE, Okla. — A Bartlesville high school football player tested positive for coronavirus, the school district said Wednesday.

Granger Meador with Bartlesville Public Schools said a player at summer workouts cleared the routine entry screening on July 16 and developed symptoms two days later.

The district was informed of his positive test on July 25, Meador said.

The district started their internal contact tracing to notify close contacts of a self-quarantine through July 30 since the last time the student was on campus was on July 16, Meador said.

“The summer workouts have all along been segmented into small cohorts with disinfection of equipment between groups in anticipation of a possible positive case,” Meador said.

Football practice is scheduled to start on Aug. 10.
