COVID-19

Enterprise City Schools reported a decrease in COVID-19 numbers again this week.

According to Enterprise Superintendent Greg Faught, ECS had just three student cases and one employee case last week. Additionally, Coffee County Schools reported 14 new cases.

Zion Chapel School had six new student cases, New Brockton Elementary School had one faculty case and one student case, New Brockton High School had four student cases and Kinston School had two student cases.

Coffee County Schools Superintendent said that the number of students and employees in quarantine has also declined.

“We are still diligently working to secure vaccines for our employees that wish to receive it,” Killingsworth said. “The process to obtain the vaccine is frustrating at best. In speaking with other local superintendents in our area, most have obtained enough vaccines for their employees who wish to take it other than the three school systems within the borders of Coffee County and one other local county system.

“We do have those trying desperately to assist us in getting enough vaccines and I truly appreciate their assistance. James Brown, Coffee County EMA Director, Matt Rodgers from ESCC and Dr. Beverly Jordan have been persistent in their efforts.”

According to the Alabama Department of Public Health’s school dashboard, Daleville City Schools had less than five new cases over the last week, Elba City Schools had less than five new cases, Dale County Schools had 13 new cases, Ozark City Schools had eight new cases and Dothan City Schools had seven new cases.
