(KXII) -The Ardmore Tigers will miss the next two football games after a player tested positive for COVID-19.

The entire Tigers team and staff will be quarantined for the next two weeks after the positive test was confirmed. Two games will be canceled, both are non-district games. Ardmore was scheduled to play Shawnee and Ponca City.

“We will miss those two non-district games,” head coach Josh Newby said. “We really thought we had a chance to win those. It’s unfortunate."

Ardmore schools released this statement:

“We have been working with the county health department and the state epidemiologist from the Oklahoma State Department of Health to make recommendations of quarantine after we were notified of a COVID-19 positive case involving the football team. After investigating and consulting with the epidemiologist, it was determined that the team and associated personnel will be quarantined for 14 days, with an ending date of September 19, 2020. We continue to work with the health department on mitigation strategies to keep our students and community safe.”
