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.

We're going to be looking out for another brutally hot afternoon throughout the Tri-State; afternoon highs should peak in the mid to high 90s with heat indices approaching and even surpassing 105°. As for the remainder of the evening, one can expect much of the same - temperatures will stick around the upper 80s through at least dinnertime before dipping to 80° or so by 10PM. By that time there is a good potential of some rainfall and storms picking up across the Tri-State. There is a chance we could see some severe weather develop with these storms. We'll start to see relief return Friday afternoon into Saturday.
