Severna Park High School Announces Second Positive Case of Covid-19 in Their Athletics Program
Just days after school officials announced a varsity football player at Severna Park High tested positive for the coronavirus, another announcement has been made regarding a player on the school's varsity volleyball team.
According to the letter released yesterday, a student-athlete in the varsity volleyball program
has tested positive for COVID-19. The student-athlete was reportedly a participant in the team’s February 22, 2021, practice and subsequently tested positive.
The Anne Arundel County Health Department has advised the varsity volleyball program to cease any in-person practices and other gatherings for a period of 14 days.
School leaders are requiring all student-athletes involved in the February 22, 2021 varsity practice to quarantine for a period of 14 days.
The school recommends anyone who was involved in the practice be tested. "The quarantine period is unaffected by the results of a COVID-19 test. All
persons quarantining must complete the quarantine period without exhibiting symptoms. Please note that an individual’s quarantine timeline could be extended if there is ongoing exposure, such as might occur if a household member is sick with COVID-19."
