Officials in Cy-Fair ISD reported 378 new confirmed COVID-19 cases on campuses from Jan. 18-24, including 137 staff members and 241 students across the district. This is the highest number of cases confirmed in any given week since the start of the school year, up from 298 cases the previous week.

This brings the district’s total number of cases reported since the start of the 2020-21 school year to 2,239. As of Jan. 25, CFISD reported 531 active cases and 1,708 recoveries.

Cypress Ranch High School and Langham Creek High School tied for the most cases confirmed last week, with 21 at each campus.

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 their infectious period.

Weekly data is shown below, and campus-specific data can be found here.

CFISD students and staff members who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms are eligible for free rapid testing services at the site where Windfern High School was formerly located, 12630 Windfern Road, Houston, Mon.-Fri. from 7 a.m.-4 p.m.


A student ID or employee badge is required to receive one of these free tests, and students under age 18 must have parent or guardian consent. See additional requirements here.
