A local high school football scrimmage has been cancelled amid COVID-19 concerns.

Officials have called off Friday’s preseason event between Reitz and Mater Dei at Reitz Bowl.

The cancellation follows word from the Catholic Diocese that a third student has tested positive for the coronavirus.

The diocese would not say where the students attended.

Classes resumed in the Catholic Diocese last week.

In a statement, the diocese said its schools have followed – and will continue to follow – all recommended protocols to keep students and staff safe.
