Several Norwin teams played Wednesday, including the girls soccer team, after the district’s announcement that five new cases were traced to Norwin schools by the Pennsylvania Department of Health.
“Given our current situation, the students in question did not have direct contact with the members of our athletic teams that are able to continue to participate,” Norwin athletic director Mike Burrell said. “We are following the (Department of Health) guidelines, our students are working remotely and we are safely able to participate in athletics. We will continue to monitor accordingly.”
Norwin Superintendent Jeff Taylor said in a written update to the district that athletes should expect to receive information from their coach or adviser “as to how they will be impacted.”
The high school, middle school, intermediate school and Hahntown and Sunset Valley elementary schools will close until Oct. 13 at the earliest.
