Levelland suspends summer workouts this week

Levelland ISD shut down its summer strength and conditioning program this week after a student-athlete recently tested positive for COVID-19.
In a press release from Levelland Athletic Director Andy Correll, he said the situation was a `very isolated incident.’
“We do have a student-athlete that has tested positive for Covid-19. This individual has only come to one skill development day this past week, has never been to our summer strength and conditioning, (he) only came one day to a skill development practice,” said Correll. “The Individual began feeling ill, so he was tested and received a positive test result.”
He added, “The exposure to others is very minimal, but we decided to go ahead and cancel this week’s summer strength and conditioning and all activities.”
There were already no planned workouts for next week, July 6-10. Correll said this would give the athletes and staff two weeks away from summer workouts.
“We will continue to disinfect all facilities and equipment. We feel this is a proactive choice to keep all our kids and staff safe,” said Levelland’s athletic director.
Correll said if all clear, and no active incidents of exposure, they would resume summer workouts July 13.
“Again, this was a very isolated incident, but we feel with the off week next week, that we could go ahead and cancel this week’s strength and conditioning as well, and get a good 14-day period of no exposure.” He concluded, “Summer strength and conditioning is going very well and the kids are working hard. We look forward to getting back to work on July 13.”
