TAVARES, Fla. – Thirty-three students and five adults are quarantining for 14 days after two students on the Tavares High School football team tested positive for COVID-19.

According to Lake County Public School officials, the school’s football team was practicing last week and exercising on the field while maintaining social distancing when a lightning storm came up quickly. The students and adults at the practice took shelter in a field house where they were unable to maintain social distancing, a spokesperson for LCPS said.

“A couple of days later, we learned that two students tested positive for the virus. Out of an abundance of caution, we asked all of the students (33 total) and the five adults who were with them to quarantine for 14 days,” a district spokesperson said in an email.

District officials said they have not received any reports of anyone else from the group being symptomatic or testing positive for COVID-19.

On Wednesday, the Florida Department of Health reported Lake County had seen a total of 2,882 confirmed cases of COVID-19 since the disease was first detected in the state on March 1, as well as 154 total hospitalizations and 28 coronavirus-related deaths in the area.

    • Your right Hornetfan. #1 is Taevion Swint. He will be in 8th grade this year. Plays AAU for Osceola Panthers in Kissimmee. 
    • Wow so Suwannee only win in the past 15 years came when Columbia basically shot themselves in the foot    Definitely interesting and it could stand as Suwannee last win for a very long time, especially if they don't decide to play us in the future as Suwannee was the one who decided in the end to cut the series 
    • It wasn't the 2004 game.  Interestingly, Columbia was the team who did not score any offensive TD's in that game.  Their only score was a defensive fumble recovery for a TD.  In 2007, 4-4 Suwannee faced off against 7-2 Columbia for the Oaken Bucket at Suwannee.  In the first quarter, Suwannee's D stripped the ball and ran it back nearly 50 yards for a TD to go up 6-0.  The Bulldogs were completely shut down in the first half, totaling only 17 yards of offense.  Columbia took the lead 7-6 and held it into the fourth quarter.  Suwannee missed a fg and the game looked all but over with only about 4 minutes remaining.  But Suwannee's D stripped the ballcarrier again and ran it back for a 40-yard score.  Columbia had a chance to win it in the remaining few minutes, but self-destructed due to penalties.            
    • Well that makes it a lot easier   Since 1990 Columbia has only 4 losses against Suwannee   1995 (lost 21-0) this one is out because Columbia never led in the game    2001 lost 10-7 this one is possible   2004 lost 14-6 possible I suppose, interesting enough this was only game coached by Scott Anderson who was fired for a incident at practice the next week, he was replaced by Frank Beasley for the rest of the year before Danny Green returned for 3 more seasons at Columbia   And lastly 2007 14-7 loss      I'm gonna go with 2004 and I'll say probably a defensive TD and then fumbled on the kickoff to give up a second TD
    • So the answer is your gonna keep sitting here on your High horse and not putting a poll out there    Exactly what I thought
