MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The Montgomery Public School system has begun posting information on the number of positive COVID-19 cases at each of its facilities.

MPS said the data is broken down by school and will be updated on a weekly basis. The number will not be broken down by students and staff. Rather, MPS said it will combine that information.

The data includes only positive cases, not the number of students or staff members who are on quarantine as a result.

MPS said every school reports its data at the end of each day and that information is released publicly each Friday.

Privacy laws and system policies prevent MPS from identifying or providing any details that could help identify any of those who have tested positive.

For the week of Oct. 19-23, MPS reports the following COVID-19 cases:

MPS says anyone in direct contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19 will get a letter notifying them of their possible exposure.

Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 will be required to isolate and follow provided instructions.

MPS also urges people to continue to wear masks and to practice safe social distancing and asks parents to keep students who don’t feel well at home.
