BEXLEY, Ohio (WCMH) — The Bexley High School football team and three Westerville Central teams are suspending workouts after players tested positive for COVID-19.

Bexley announced in a letter from the Bexley High School Athletics Administration to the families of football players that summer workouts will be suspended until further notice after a player tested positive for the virus.

The school is performing contact tracing to determine the level of exposure to the virus, the letter states.

“Again, this is to err on the side of caution as we work through timelines and possible exposures,” the letter states.

At Westerville Central, athletic director Andy Ely said two football players, a volleyball player, and a girls soccer player all tested positive for COVID-19.

The sports will be shutdown for two weeks from the last time those players had contact with their teammates.

For the football program, it means shutting down for two weeks from last Tuesday, July 21, meaning they can resume on Aug. 3. For the volleyball and girls soccer teams, it means shutting down for two weeks from last Wednesday, July 22, meaning they can resume on Aug. 4.
