PHENIX CITY, Ala. (WTVM) - Some new cases of COVID-19 among a varsity baseball team in Phenix City Schools is prompting an investigation out of an abundance of caution.

A total of six new COVID-19 cases are being documented across Phenix City Schools, according to Superintendent Randy Wilkes.

Out of an abundance of caution and in order to better investigate matters, baseball after-school workouts were canceled and baseball players were asked to attend school remotely.

Wilkes says the in-person positivity rate is still below 0.2% for the first six weeks of school.
