Here are Oklahoma school districts where COVID-19 cases have been discovered since school began

A coronavirus case has touched a school in every part of Oklahoma.

School is just starting across the state and already more than a dozen districts have reported cases of COVID-19. Some have pushed back start dates, shifted to distance learning or are simply trying to persevere.

Here is a list of schools where StateImpact has found announcements or news reports of active case discoveries:

Because school has just started it appears cases of the virus will likely be the norm. Last month, the Oklahoma State Department of Health issued a rare public health advisory calling for all students over the age of 11, teachers and staff to wear face coverings in schools.

However, the guideline is not a mandate. Schools’ COVID-19 precautions and regulations continue to be the responsibility of local officials.

This COVID-19/education reporting is made possible through a grant from the Walton Family Foundation.
