Knox County Schools has 11 active COVID-19 cases, the school district announced Monday.
Of those 11 cases, two are students and nine are staff members. KCS did not say which schools had the 11 COVID-19 cases.
The district reported that 185 people were in self-isolation — 176 students and 9 staff members.
The 11 cases are listed on the district’s COVID-19 dashboard that was last updated Friday. District spokeswoman Carly Harrington said the district will update the dashboard Monday morning to reflect data from the weekend and will update it again at 4 p.m. to reflect Monday data.
Monday marked the first day of in-person classes for Knox County Schools since March 12.
There are already two student cases listed on the dashboard. Harrington said the district works with the Knox County Health Department to track cases.
“If the student was participating in a school-related activity, then we were made aware,” Harrington said in a text message.
There are 83 school nurses who have been trained to do contact tracing under the authority of KCHD.
Around 30% of Knox County students chose the virtual learning option for the semester, with 70% of students returning for in-person classes.
