Spectator at 2A state hoops championships tested positive for COVID-19

The WIAA was notified Tuesday that a spectator in attendance on one day at the Hardwood Classic at the Yakima SunDome has tested positive for COVID-19.

The person in question was present in Yakima only on Saturday, March 7 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m, according to the Yakima Health District. North Kitsap’s championship game was at 3 p.m. that day.

Out of an abundance of caution, the Yakima Health District has recommended the WIAA notify anyone who may have had close contact with the person so they may monitor for COVID-19 symptoms over the next five days, through Saturday, March 21.

A tournament worker at the 3A and 4A championships at the Tacoma Dome tested positive for COVID-19 late last week and the earliest the individual was contagious was Saturday, March 7.
