Officials in Cy-Fair ISD reported 183 new confirmed COVID-19 cases on campuses from Jan. 4-10, including 81 staff members and 102 students across the district.
As of Jan. 11, the district reported 393 active cases and 1,170 recoveries since Sept. 8. This brings the district’s total number of cases reported since the start of the 2020-21 school year to 1,563, including 69 reported over the winter break from Dec. 21-Jan. 3.
The Texas Education Agency requires public school districts throughout the state to submit a weekly report detailing the number of test-confirmed positive COVID-19 cases among students and employees who participate in any on-campus activity. This data does not include students learning remotely and may not include those who test positive while in quarantine if they were not on campus during the period in which they were infectious.
Weekly data is shown below, and campus-specific data can be found here.
