SOUTH POINT, OH (WOWK) — South Point High School is cancelling football practices for two weeks after a member of the football team reported he tested positive for the coronavirus.

In a Facebook post, the school says the positive result came from a non-FDA approved test, and the player was sent to get an approved test. The school says it is working closely with the Lawrence County Health Department.

In a separate post, South Point Middle School announced it is halting all sports for the rest of the week for cleaning out of an abundance of caution.
