BOONE, N.C. – App State and AppHealthCare (our local public health agency) have identified one active case of COVID-19 in a member of the Mountaineers volleyball team. The student is recovering in isolation. Contact tracing efforts have led to quarantine for other members of the team.
At this time, the Mountaineers do not have enough available players for the upcoming matches against Georgia Southern that were scheduled to open App State's 2020 season. Working with the Sun Belt Conference, App State and Georgia Southern will attempt to reschedule the three-match series at a later date.
