Trenton Athlete COVID Case
An athlete at Trenton Schools has tested positive for COVID-19. According to an official letter published on Social Media, Trenton Athletic Director John Cowling stated the person is a member of Trenton’s Volleyball team.
In the letter, Cowling stated that “even though we have taken precautionary measures in order for our volleyball program to be successful and stay healthy, situations like this are inevitable and we are now faced with a positive case on our team.”
He stated that according to MSHSAA regulations, this means it is necessary for the entire Trenton Volleyball player roster and coaching staff to be quarantined from the point of last contact with the positive case.
The Grundy County Health Department along with the Trenton R-IX School District will conduct a close contact investigation and any students or adults who are determined to be close contacts will be notified by either the health department or the Trenton school district.
Chillicothe played Trenton in Volleyball last Thursday. The Trenton players’ return date is scheduled for September 16th. The School District will try to reschedule the missed contests.
