Georgia says “Two week delay” in high school football, 26,000 cases last week

Football games in Georgia have been delayed by two weeks, but not canceled due to the pandemic. Georgia High School Association postponed the start of the high school football season after a meeting Monday.

The Georgia High School Association announced a plan that would delay fall sports by two weeks, but keep all games in place, including the state playoffs.

In the last week, Georgia has seen over 26,000 cases of COVID-19. Last Thursday, Georgia’s Gov. Brian Kemp filed a lawsuit challenging restrictions placed by Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, including a face mask ordinance to residents to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

The ruling came the same day officials in California voted to delay all fall sports until December at the earliest.
