HUMBOLDT — Humboldt High’s football season ended one game sooner than expected when a member of the team tested positive over the weekend for COVID-19.

In response, the county’s health director instructed the football team to quarantine for the next two weeks.

Humboldt (4-4) had already been eliminated from postseason contention, and was slated to finish the season Thursday evening at home, likely against Southeast-Cherokee.
