Athletics Advisory: Coronavirus Exposure Reported
Posted on 07/01/2020
Please be advised that Perkins Local School District administrators have been notified that an athlete participating in the Perkins football summer training program has come in contact with another individual who has tested positive for the coronavirus.

The individual who tested positive was not a participant in the Perkins program and the contact occurred more than a week ago. The Perkins athlete has not shown any signs of COVID-19.

At this time, Perkins administrators feel that no action is necessary and training will continue with proper precautions and guidelines received from the Ohio High School Athletic Association. Coaches will continue to monitor athletes daily as they enter our facilities.

Parents of student-athletes should monitor their students to watch for any signs of the illness, including fever, coughing, and shortness of breath.

If parents have questions, please contact the Perkins Administrative Service Center at (419) 625-0484 or the Perkins Athletic Department at (419) 621-2061. Parents can also review Perkins Local Schools’ COVID-19 athletics reopening plan at

Thank you for your understanding in these unprecedented times and your continued support of Perkins Athletics.
