Today, we were informed an individual from Coronado High School, who has been part of sports activities on campus, has tested positive for COVID-19.
The football program has to halt practices for 10 days, due to COVID-19 safety protocols.
All athletic practices have been limited in size to comply with Nevada Interscholastic Athletic Association guidelines. Coaches have designed conditioning plans to allow for social distance between student-athletes and coaches to reduce the risk for students and employees.
At this time, the school administration is working to determine if the Coronado High School football program will have enough time to safely prepare for intramural and intrasquad scrimmages.
