ABERDEEN, Miss. (WTVA) - Aberdeen's football team is under quarantine after a positive coronavirus test.
Because the football program only reported one case, the team could have quarantined for only one week.
However, Aberdeen School Superintendent Jeffrey Clay said the district decided to make it a two-week quarantine.
