Goshen Community Schools has announced that the high school girls basketball teams have been put under quarantine.
(You can read the school's release below.)
On Thursday, November 12, 2020 Goshen Community Schools (GCS) administration was informedthat a Goshen High School (GHS) girls basketball student-athlete had tested positive for COVID-19.The positive case was reported to the Elkhart County Health Department (ECHD) by Wendy Swallow,RN, GHS School Nurse/GCS School Nurse Coordinator, as per COVID-19 procedures.
Following discussion among GCS administrators, and upon the recommendation of the ECHD,decisions have been made to ensure the safety of all girls basketball student-athletes, managers, andcoaches. Goshen High School JV and varsity girls basketball players will be required to quarantine for14 days, since the players are considered close contacts to the student-athlete who tested positive.
Quarantine means the players will not attend school, practices, or any other co-curricular activitiesduring the 14-day quarantine.
The GHS Varsity and JV girls basketball games scheduled for 11/14 vs. Fairfield, 11/19 vs.Westview, and 11/24 vs. Columbia City are officially postponed. “C” Team practices and gameswill continue as scheduled.
GCS understands how disappointing this must be for the student-athletes who have worked hard to beready to compete and represent their school. We hope the community will continue to support the JVand varsity girls basketball players during the next 14 days through emails or phone calls, but definitelynot visits!
