Officials with Owensboro High School say the school's football team won't be playing in Henderson on Friday due to Henderson's current "Red" COVID-19 Status.

OHS Sports made the announcement on Friday, Oct. 23, one week ahead of the date that the game in Henderson would have been played on.

"On Friday, Oct. 30, our football game at Henderson has been canceled due to the Red county status that Henderson is in," OHS Sports said.

In Kentucky, a county is classified as "Red" by having at least 25 new positive COVID-19 cases per day per 100,000 residents. Henderson County currently shows 33.5 new positive cases daily.

According to OHS Sports, the school's team will now face off against Breckinridge County on Oct. 30 in Owensboro.

That game will take place at 7:00 p.m. on Friday at Rash Stadium at OHS.

Conditions are dry, but chilly. Winds have strengthened out of the north making it feel bitterly cold. As we head into the overnight hours temperatures will fall into the mid 20s. As winds stay gusty out of the north it will make it feel more like the teens Sunday morning under clear skies. The majority of the Tri-State will remain dry come Sunday afternoon. There is a slim chance that some of our communities across the far southern reaches of the Tri-State could see some light snowfall early in the afternoon, but it's looking like it will stay south and east of the Tri-State. We'll climb to a high temperature of 38° with sunny and breezy conditions. Gusts out of the north could reach 25-30 MPH.
