Nacogdoches ISD on Monday announced the addition of a coronavirus data information section to the district website, where daily updates will document any lab-confirmed cases of the virus at one of its campuses or facilities.
The page will include the campus or district facility and last date the student or staff member was at that location. The district must also report infections to local health officials and the Texas Education Agency.
Parents, too, will be notified when a case is reported on their child’s campus.
“In addition to the updates required by the state and the information we share with parents and staff, we want to provide notification to our community, as well, about any cases associated with the school district,” NISD Superintendent Dr. Gabriel Trujillo said in a statement.
The link is titled “COVID-19 INFORMATION” and is the top right of the district's website, NacISD.org. As of Monday morning, the site did not list any new cases.
SFA reports cases under the green “Open SFA” tab located at the university’s website, sfasu.edu. As of Monday, there were 46 active cases among students and staff, according to the site, with 28 of those cases believed to have been present on campus while they were infected.
