Cathedral High School Student-Athlete tests positive for COVID-19, All athletic activities postponed until further notice

Diocese of El Paso officials announced Friday evening that a Cathedral High School student-athlete who was taking part in workouts at the campus this week has tested positive for COVID-19.

“Parents of all athletes who were working out at the school on the same day have been notified, and they have all been encouraged to be tested for the virus and to self-quarantine for 14 days,” Diocese officials shared via a news release. “Cathedral High School athletic staff have also been encouraged to get tested and to likewise self-quarantine for 14 days.”

The Cathedral High School training facility had opened on Monday following the guidelines, protocols and restrictions of the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools and the University Interscholastic League.

According to officials, during operation of the training facility, athletic staff and athletes strictly adhered to social distancing guidelines, wore masks, and conducted wellness and contactless temperature checks.

All equipment was sanitized after each use, and a disinfection fogger was used on the entire facility after every team workout.

“Out of an abundance of caution, the training facility at Cathedral High School and all school athletic activities have been suspended for the recommended 14-day quarantine and disinfection period,” officials added.

Cathedral High School administration and staff will re-visit reopening facilities after the 14 day period.
