Updated Dashboard Shows 236 COVID-19 Cases in Alabama Public Schools
The Alabama Department of Public Health has released an updated school dashboard of coronavirus cases as of April 2. The latest report shows several systems did not report due to spring break.
School systems such as Montgomery Public Schools have been all-virtual, but are giving the students the option of returning to in-person classes starting Monday, April 5.
ADPH says because of spring break, there may be breaks or irregularities in reporting.
