COVID-19 update across Texoma

WOODSON, Texas (TNN) - Woodson ISD confirmed Wednesday that two people within the school district have tested positive for COVID-19.

School was released early Wednesday and will remain closed until next Monday, Oct. 5 out of an abundance of caution.

All activities have also been suspended until that time.

School officials say since the school district’s size is small, there is a high chance that students may have been exposed to someone with the virus.

They’re asking parents to monitor their child’s health and to watch for the following symptoms of COVID-19:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

Symptoms may appear from two to 14 days after exposure.

The school district says they will not be starting remote instruction for students during this week’s closure.
