WORCESTER, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) – A Worcester high school football team is dealing with a Coronavirus outbreak.
School Safety Director at Worcester Public Schools, Robert Pezzella, said ten football players at Burncoat High School have tested positive for Covid-19 since the end of last month.
The outbreak meant the team was forced to cancel practice as well as their latest game. About 60 other students have also tested positive for Covid at the school.
Superintendent Maureen Binienda has said parents can keep their students in school if they continue to test negative for the virus. Parents can do this through the school’s partnership with the Test and Stay Program.
