Wallowa's first football game, scheduled originally for this weekend against Elgin, has been canceled, Wallowa Athletic Director Mitch Frye said Wednesday, March 3.
The game was dropped, Frye said, after an outbreak of COVID-19 was reported in the Elgin School District.
The Observer reported late Wednesday afternoon that through contact tracing, five individuals in Elgin schools had been confirmed as being exposed to the virus. The school also had several absences in recent days due to COVID-like symptoms, the article said.
Wallowa's first game, barring a change, will now be March 11 at Enterprise.
