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.
