09-23-2020 — COVID-19 affects three varsity Lexington High School football games

Lexington High School canceled two and rescheduled one varsity football game after a COVID-19 positive exposure resulted in the team being unable to play. This decision did not impact Lexington High’s junior varsity or B teams.

Any COVID-19 exposure results in the quarantining of direct exposure (close contact for more than 15 minutes within less than six feet) to an individual(s) that tested positive for COVID-19.

The team was scheduled to play Beaufort High (Sept. 25), White Knoll High (Oct. 2) and Ridge View High (Oct. 10). The game with White Knoll High will be played on Oct. 30.
The district believes that when students follow their passion, whether athletics, the arts, or other extracurricular activities, their participation helps shape them into responsible, well-rounded adults.

The district makes its contact tracing and quarantining process public on its webpage in the COVID-19 Parent/Guardian Communications Guide. All Lexington District One parents received this information on Sept. 8.

Individuals who purchased general admission tickets to the Sept. 25 game with Beaufort High can get a refund by bringing their purchased tickets to the LHS Athletic Ticket Office on Wednesday, Sept. 9, and Thursday, Oct. 1, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Friday, Oct. 2, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. More information to come soon.
