The varsity football game scheduled for Saturday, April 10, 2021, between Fort Hill and Allegany High Schools has been cancelled due to a COVID-19 related issue. The game will not be rescheduled. This decision was made in collaboration with staff from both schools as well as school system administrators.
Through the twice-weekly testing protocol, the university identified clusters of cases among students in common social circles during the past weekly testing period. Individuals that have tested positive have elected to go home or were moved into the off-campus housing contracted for isolation and quarantine purposes. As with all positive tests, contract tracing is ongoing. Disinfection and sanitization protocol for any residence hall areas has occurred with continued follow-up treatments of high-touch areas.
While the positivity rate remains below 1%, there has been an increase in positive cases in the region and the state. Every member of the university community must remain vigilant in obeying FSU public health measures and guidance over these final weeks of the semester. Students can reach out to the Brady Health Center by calling 301-687-4310 if they have symptoms or health concerns. https://www.frostburg.edu/spring2021/testing-dashboard.php
