Royal ISD workouts shut down until July 6

Posted

Royal ISD announced Tuesday that a student-athlete who had attended sport-specific training for cross country the day prior, June 22, had direct exposure to an individual who had tested positive for COVID-19 and as a result, all workouts were suspended until July 6.

“We ask that all Royal athletes who have participated in recent training sessions self-quarantine for 14 days. We have advised them to monitor their health, follow the (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) guidelines for people who have had close contact, and contact their primary care physician if they develop symptoms,” the June 23 statement said.

The statement said the district notified athletes of the cancellations and were told to be on the lookout for symptoms including fever or chills, fatigue, headache, new loss of taste or smell and any nausea, vomiting or diarrhea, among other symptoms.

Royal ISD becomes the latest district to fall victim to a workout shutdown under guidelines put in place by the University Interscholastic League. Nearby Sealy ISD’s workouts were suspended June 16 after a coach tested positive for COVID-19 earlier that day.
