Vaccine

A sign marks the entrance of the COVID-19 vaccination and testing site at the former Nolan Middle School in November.

The number of active COVID-19 cases reported to the Killeen Independent School District quadrupled over the weekend.

As of Saturday, Killeen ISD reported 20 active cases of coronavirus among eight students and 12 employees, according to the district’s online dashboard.

By Tuesday morning, according to the district’s dashboard, KISD’s active COVID-19 case count was up to 95 cases among 59 students and 36 employees.

KISD’s online dashboard records PCR-confirmed COVID-19 lab test results but does not include positive COVID-19 rapid test results.

When asked for the number of students and employees absent Monday, KISD spokeswoman Taina Maya said the data wasn't readily available.

Funny but disturbing thing about this: I heard around the time of Ms. Dodd wrote this story; she herself tested positive for COVID-19 and still — after receiving and acknowledging her positive test — still went to her place of work and the editors said NOTHING!

I feel like that happens a lot more than we realize!

But her employer knowing about her status still let her come into work "quarantining" her in a separate office; endangering others of this virus! Does KDH not let their employees work from home?! If this doesn't smell privileged, I don't know what it is.
