BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - As schools across Texas open their doors, the state is currently not tracking COVID-19 data provided by districts.
Leaders from both College Station and Bryan school districts say they have a plan in case someone in their schools contracts COVID-19.
“No plan can cover everything,” said Dr. Seth Sullivan, Brazos County Alternate Health Authority.
“We’re ensuring that we are getting good information quickly, accurate information quickly, to be decisive and act upon it,” said Dr. Sullivan.
Even though the Brazos County Health District is getting that data from the schools, the state of Texas is currently not planning to track it.
In the meantime, a Bryan mom thinks seeing the coronavirus case numbers in schools is a reasonable request.
“I think it is a reasonable thing to want a similar layer of transparency with our schools as we get with our community.”. »
