Uintah Ute Football Season Officially Over Following COVID Testing

The Uintah Ute football season is officially over following team testing on Tuesday. “On Tuesday, October 20th, the Uintah High School football team met the criteria for a COVID-19 outbreak, based on the results of subsequent testing of players and coaches,” shares the announcement from Uintah School District. “Three confirmed cases of COVID-19 in a 14-day period in a classroom or team setting constitutes an outbreak, per public health protocols. This effectively ends the football team’s 2020 season. Contact tracing is underway for the new positive cases; however, players and coaches have been quarantined since October 13th. The quarantine was deemed necessary because players and coaches had prolonged, close contact during an October 12th team meeting with an individual who later tested positive for COVID-19. Masks were not worn during the meeting. Uintah High will work with football parents to find a way to honor the team’s 19 seniors.”
