Great job of reporting by Todd Holcomb of Georgia High School Football Daily, who has written a story outlining the number of coronavirus cases reported to the Georgia High School Association since teams began summer workouts on June 8. GHSF Daily provides with Atlanta Journal-Constitution with its high school football content.

According to Holcomb’s story, 655 positive COVID-19 cases among players and coaches have been reported statewide. Fall camps opened in Georgia on Monday and players are currently going through the heat acclimation week.

Holcomb also discovered that six teams are currently not working-out because of COVID-19. Those schools are — Morgan County, Putnam County, Greene County, Social Circle and Lincoln County in east and central Georgia and Lakeside in DeKalb County.

Here’s an excerpt of the GHSF Daily story:

The 655 positive tests reported to the GHSA are more than double the roughly 300 the association had on file two weeks ago, but does not necessarily reflect a surge. It could be an increase in schools reporting, which is not mandatory or time-sensitive.
