Arcadia vs. Olympia matchup canceled after several Arcadia players test positive for COVID-19

GREECE, N.Y. (WHEC) — Greece Arcadia’s Varsity football game against Olympia scheduled for Thursday was canceled after two of Arcadia’s team members tested positive for COVID-19 over the weekend.

The Greece Central School District said the team has not practiced together since, but since the weekend the school advised team members to get tested for COVID-19 and seven of the 31 players tested positive.

The district said as long as no more players test positive, most players should be able to resume practice next week, though the district is also considering more testing before authorizing a return to play.
