KRAI News for Friday, Oct. 16, 2020

There won’t be any football this weekend in Moffat County. For the second week in a row, the team that was scheduled to play the Bulldogs had to cancel because of players in quarantine from COVID. So the Englewood Pirates won’t be in Craig tonight. Moffat County Athletic Director Jeremy Cheuvront says they reached out to CHSAA to see if any other teams in Colorado were in the same situation.

Cheuvront says the Bulldogs will try to regroup and get ready for an away game the next weekend, against Elizabeth.

 The Soroco Rams are on the road tonight against Rangely. Here’s Soroco Senior Kody Logan.

Soroco lost their first game of the season last weekend to Sanford, and Rangely won their first game, 46-6, over Sangre de Cristo. Kickoff is at 7 p.m., and once again that game is away in Rangely. Hayden plays West Grand this Tuesday night at home.

Trick-or-Treat Street is still scheduled for Halloween night in downtown Craig. But the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment will be the ones making the final decision, whether the annual Craig tradition is allowed. Here’s event coordinator Kandee Dilldine with the Downtown Business Association.

Dilldine says a mitigation plan has been submitted to the state and they hope to hear back by the end of next week whether Trick-or-Treat Street can happen in Craig this year.

Victory Motors is also waiting to hear from the state regarding their Trunk-or-Treat Event.

You can get a flu shot for FREE in Moffat County until noon today. Moffat County Public Health is offering free flu vaccinations at the Craig Fire Training Property at 1050 Industrial Ave.

South Routt County schools and businesses have started a campaign promoting preventative measures for COVID-19. It’s called “Be South Routt Ready,” to wear a mask, wash your hands, social distance, stay home if you feel sick, and get tested if you have symptoms. The communities of Oak Creek and Yampa and the South Routt School District are all supporting the plan. 

A message From Routt County Public Health…  Remember to stay home if you’re sick; help make COVID stop with you.
