JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - With the 2020-2021 school year underway, COVID-19 is spreading through several Northeast Arkansas communities.
To help parents ensure their child’s safety, the Arkansas Center for Health Improvement (ACHI) has teamed up with the Department of Education to provide school district-level COVID-19 data.
Using information from the Department of Health, the maps and tables show the trends of new positive cases for residents living in school districts across Arkansas.
The ACHI reported Thursday rates of 50 or more new infections per 10,000 residents in 9 districts. Of those, none had a new rate of 100 infections or more per 10,000 residents.
As of Thursday, Nov. 11, no Arkansas public school districts have infection rates of 50 or more new known infections per 10,000 district residents. That’s down from nine last week.
