COVID-19 Is Back At It, Leading To The Cancellation of Honokaa At Keaau Football Game

It was supposed to be the first high school football game of the fall on the Big Island.

But Friday night’s Honokaa at Keaau matchup didn’t happen.

The reason: COVID-19. Previously, the virus wiped out the whole 2020 season and interrupted a lot of 2021. Obviously, the health crisis is still causing problems with interscholastic athletics.

Bedrock Sports Hawaii learned of this development via text Saturday morning from a source close to the situation:

“A team member from Keaau tested positive for COVID, so all non-vaccinated players had a mandatory five-day isolation. So Keaau did not have enough players to have the game.”

So, to be clear, it’s not that there was a huge outbreak of COVID. It’s more about the isolation rule in place for the non-vaxed.

If the Cougars, a BIIF Division I team, can clear up the problem this week, they will be hosting Kalani of OIA D-II next Saturday.

The Dragons’ next scheduled game is a BIIF D-II league home encounter against Ka’u.
