EL PASO, Texas -- Three high school football games in El Paso were scrapped shortly after Mayor Dee Margo implored residents to "stay home" as a result of record-setting new cases of Covid-19 in the city.

The official twitter account for the Franklin High School football team tweeted that its game against Eastlake Thursday night was postponed, but offered no further details.

Meantime, Friday's night's games between Bel Air and Ysleta as well as Tornillo vs. Cathedral were cancelled, with no apparent plans to reschedule those.
