Merritt Island High football team enters Covid-19 quarantine

VIERA, Florida – After careful deliberation, in consultation with the Brevard Department of Health, the decision has been made to quarantine the Merritt Island High football team as a result of a positive COVID-19 test.  

 

The DOH has notified all staff and families of student athletes who were in close contact with the individual who confirmed positive and have requested they quarantine for 14 days.

 

The team will forfeit their next two scheduled games on October 23 versus Satellite and October 30 versus Astronaut.  Currently, the team is scheduled to resume play on 11/6. 

 

Areas where the football team congregated will undergo deep cleaning and sanitizing.

 

During the quarantine period, students will continue with their classes via e-Learning.
