News release from Lubbock ISD:

Lubbock Independent School District administrators have confirmed cases of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) affecting the varsity football program at Monterey High School. In consultation with local health authorities, the decision has been made to place the varsity program on hiatus to allow for treatment of those who have contracted the virus and quarantines for those who have exposure risk due to close contact.

All practices and Monterey’s game with Amarillo Tascosa, scheduled for November 20 at PlainsCapital Park, have been canceled, with Monterey forfeiting that contest. As of now, Monterey’s game with Coronado on November 27 at PlainCapital Park will be played as scheduled.   

Lubbock ISD protocols require the wearing of appropriate face coverings for students, teachers, coaches, staff, and administrators; and social distancing. All athletes in Lubbock ISD football programs are equipped with face shields. The Texas Education Agency defines close contact as being within six feet of an infected person for a duration of 15 minutes, while not wearing a mask; or being directly exposed to infectious secretions like a cough or sneeze. As a precautionary measure and in the spirit of transparency, we are asking families to closely monitor for these COVID-19 symptoms: 

  • Feeling feverish or a measured temperature greater than or equal to 100.0 degrees F. 
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Cough
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Chills
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Shaking or exaggerated shivering
  • Significant muscle pain or ache
  • Diarrhea 
  • Nausea or vomiting

Lubbock ISD adheres to COVID-19 protocols established by the Texas Education Agency, University Interscholastic League, and City of Lubbock Health Department.
