Cabarrus County Schools reported 11 total new cases of COVID-19 found in the district for the first week of school, according to a Facebook post Monday.
Four of the cases are among teachers, while seven are students. According to the district’s numbers, Carl A. Furr Elementary had the highest number of positive tests, with three. No other school in the district had more than one.
Harrisburg Elementary, R. Brown McAllister, Harris Road Middle, J.N. Fries Middle, Winkler Middle, Cox Mill High and Northwest Cabarrus had one case each.
There was also one case reported in Centralized Services.
“The data included in the report will be verified by Cabarrus Health Alliance and will report case counts for the previous week,” the district said in the Facebook post. “Please refer to the ONE Strong Start Guide for Families for information about district protocols regarding COVID-19.”
All of the data for the district can be found at www.cabarrus.k12.nc.us/covid19reporting.
Cabarrus County Schools started the year in Gov. Roy Cooper’s Plan C, which allowed fully remote learning for all students.
The Board of Education voted 4-3 several weeks ago to come back in Plan A for elementary students up through third grade and Plan B for everyone else starting Oct. 19.
That vote was changed several weeks later when the School Board voted 4-3 in favor of all students coming back in Plan B.
