INDIANAPOLIS — Warren Central High School confirmed Sunday that a member of its football team tested positive for COVID-19.

Dennis Jarrett, director of media and community relations for the Metropolitan School District of Warren Township, said in an emailed statement that administrators notified Warren Central students who were in close contact with the football player and instructed them to quarantine for 14 days.

"After receiving confirmation that a student athlete on our football team tested positive for COVID-19, we initiated our response plan that includes communicating within 24 hours to those individuals who were in close contact with the student athlete," Jarrett said.

"Based on guidance from the Indiana State Department of Health, we have directed close contacts to quarantine for 14 days. We are asking our parents/caregivers to monitor their children and notify our Athletic Department if symptoms consistent with COVID-19 appear."

Warren Central plans to reopen for in-person and virtual classes on Thursday.
