Players and coaches from the team have been asked to quarantine through Thursday.

This comes after a member of the freshman team and a varsity coach contracted the virus earlier this summer.

The Beaver Area School District announced Sunday it was canceling all extracurricular activities for three days so that a deep cleaning can be performed on shared equipment, facilities, and common spaces.

This comes after a student from the district contracted the virus.

The school district says it has determined many contacts between this athlete and other teams in the district.

Sports teams not directly impacted will resume August 6.

Middle School and High School boys and girls soccer teams will resume on August 17.
