TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — All Varsity and all JV coaches from the Florida High volleyball program are out for the next two weeks after they were exposed to a positive COVID-19 case.

There have been no positive cases among the staff or the team.

Florida High Athletic Director Anthony Robinson told ABC 27 they have a plan in place and will have a coach to lead the programs while the regular coaching staff is in quarantine.

As a result, the Seminoles have canceled Monday night's match-up against Wakulla. Florida High does plan to travel to Pensacola Catholic on Wednesday for now, as well as to Tampa for a tournament this weekend.

The Florida High football team was set to play Gadsden County on Friday night, but after consulting with the Health Department and administration, they decided the window was too small to allow the athletes to play the Jaguars on Friday night.

Gadsden County had to cancel last week's game due to an athlete testing positive for COVID-19.

Robinson said that Gadsden County has done everything they were supposed to do, but the decision was made because, at this time, the Seminoles did not feel comfortable playing them.

Florida High has a verbal agreement to play Chiles instead. They are still working out the logistics of that match-up.
