Local school cancels volleyball game this week due to COVID-19 outbreak

A local school elected to cancel an upcoming volleyball scrimmage after four players tested positive for COVID-19, officials announced Monday.

Port Neches-Groves Superintendent Mike Gonzalez told Port Arthur Newsmedia the district canceled  Tuesday’s volleyball match between PNG and West Brook.

“We had a few kids that tested positive, and there was no point in trying to put anyone else in a position where they could be subjected to COVID,” he said.

“We are just trying to be really careful right now, especially since they are just scrimmages.”
