Huntley at Hampshire will have limited fans due to COVID-19 issues at Hampshire

Friday’s football game with Huntley playing at Hampshire will limit attendance to only immediate family members because of a COVID-19 upswing at Hampshire High School.

The Daily Herald reported Friday that the Kane County Health Department put Hampshire on “adaptive pause” and Hampshire will conduct remote learning only for the next two weeks in effort to help fight the spread of COVID-19 at the school.

The Daily Herald reported only immediate family members and marching band members would be allowed at the football game, scheduled for a 7 p.m. kickoff. Huntley athletic director Glen Wilson said the same would be true for Huntley fans, with only immediate family members allowed to attend.

The story also read that the health department reported Hampshire had 37 positive COVID cases as of Sept. 28, so the school will have remote learning through Oct. 22.
