Covid cases in Caldwell county high schools put the brakes on Friday night football

Caldwell County School officials say all three high schools in the county will be benched this weekend due to COVID-19 issues. The school system has 15 faculty and 38 students listed as having positive COVID cases. Some of those cases have affected each of the three football teams. Due to contact tracing, it means quarantine for many students and staff. Officials felt the safest thing to do was cancel the Friday night games this week.
