TYLER, Texas (KETK) – As COVID-19 continues making its way through East Texas, several school districts have taken it upon themselves to keep track of active cases.

Schools are required to report weekly to the Department of State Health Services, though those numbers are at least a week old by the time they’re reported. Schools with their own COVID dashboards are able to report numbers in real time.

KETK has compiled a list of East Texas school districts that have their own COVID-19 case count dashboards.

Schools not listed above did not appear to have COVID-19 counts available on their website.

Earlier this week, the East Texas region broke its own record for number of hospitalizations since the pandemic began.

Currently, there are 981 people hospitalized with COVID-19 in East Texas regions, according to information from the DSHS. In Texas there are 13,486 hospitalized COVID-19 patients.
