Duncan Demon football coach JT Cobble announced Sunday afternoon he will remain in quarantine for several days.
While there is no direct confirmation on if Cobble is positive for COVID-19, in a statement, he said Oklahoma State Department of Health said he will stay in quarantine until Sept. 23.
“Thanks to the diligence of our coaches and players concerning the wearing of masks and social distancing, players have not been asked to quarantine,” Cobble said in his statement. “Please continue to wear your mask, wash your hands and social distance. We will get through this together.”
For most people, COVID-19 can cause “mild or moderate symptoms that clear up within weeks, but for others, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, the highly contagious virus can cause severe symptoms and be fatal.” These symptoms include mild to severe respiratory illness along with fever, cough and difficulty breathing.
Testing in Duncan is available at Xpress Wellness, UrgentMed, MedFirst and the Stephens County Health Department.
