AUSTIN (KXAN) — With the 2022-23 school year underway, KXAN is keeping track of the number of COVID-19 cases among students and staff in Texas public schools.
Public schools are no longer required to report COVID-19 cases to the state. Because of that, the Texas Department of State Health Services is no longer publishing weekly case totals in schools, like it did during the previous two school years.
Many local districts have also stopped reporting case numbers publicly.
The chart and table below show the cumulative number of cases reported in local districts that do still report case totals.
Lake Travis ISD only reports a total number of cases and does not break down by student vs. staff. For this reason, KXAN has classified cases in this district as “unspecified.”
