MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Alabama’s COVID-19 dashboard for K-12 public schools released Friday listed 2,261 newly reported cases of the virus.

This is an increase from last week’s update, which showed 1592 newly reported cases.

The dashboard, which was developed and run by the state’s departments of public health and education, makes COVID-19 reports available for the public to review. It is updated each Friday.

Public school districts in Alabama self-report the cases to the state weekly.

The dashboard records the number of cases for students, teachers, and faculty within a system but does not provide data for each group. And the dashboard only provides case numbers on a system-wide level, not by individual schools, due to privacy concerns.
