NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Metro Nashville Public Schools announced a Friday night football game between McGavock High School and Hillwood High School will be put on hold, due to a positive COVID-19 case.

Hillwood High School Principal Stephen Sheaffer said the game has been postponed while the district further assesses the risk and exposure to players and staff. The announcement did not specify details on where the COVID-19 case came from.
