ROUND ROCK, Texas ( -- Stony Point High School will quarantine its entire football team for two weeks after a staff member tested positive for COVID-19, district officials announced Monday.

A letter was sent to parents, students, and staff Monday evening. Round Rock ISD officials say anyone who came in close contact with the affected individual, who has not been identified, are being required to quarantine for 14 days. Austin Public Health and the Williamson County and Cities Health District are handling contact tracing. Beyond those affected, operations at the campus are continuing as usual.

Stony Point was set to begin district play Friday night against Vandegrift High School. That game, along with an October 16 matchup against Cedar Ridge, are both postponed. Head Coach Craig Chessher said on Twitter that the Vandegrift game would be made up in November, and the Cedar Ridge matchup will be rescheduled for December.

Stony Point played its last game against Bowie on October 1.

Schools in the state's two largest classifications - 5A and 6A - began play on September 25 after a four-week delay due to the coronavirus pandemic.
