SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - WTOC reported on Thursday that a pair of Savannah Chatham County Public School football games had been called off due to COVID-19 exposure. The district released a statement on the cancelations Friday in a press release.
The advisory is below:
“Please be aware, the New Hampstead High School vs Groves High School Football Game scheduled for TODAY, Friday, September 24, 2021 at Pooler Stadium and the Jenkins High School vs Savannah High School Football Game scheduled for TOMORROW, Saturday, September 25, 2021 at Memorial Stadium have been canceled due to COVID Quarantine Protocols.”
