In Texas, the schools have to report the number of cases to the state and they maintain a dashboard that updates once a week. Cases still sound low (995 students - over a 1,000,000 estimated students (not sure if they are all in-person classes or not) and 792 staff out of slightly over 800,000 - side note - that seems like a very high staff/student ratio). 

However, one of the local state schools -
0 cases the week before school starts (kids moving in)
0 cases the first week of classes
1 case the second week of classes
4 cases the third week of classes
26 cases the fourth week of classes - with 42 cases still pending. Positivity ratio for this week is currently at 16%.)

Many of the kids are upset. There is no info about which dorm (or off campus) for any of these positives. And mostly they have been good about masking in campus buildings (required)

Locally off campus, fewer people are wearing masks (although there is still an Executive order to do so). 

ETA: The school population is slightly over 6,000 attending at least one in-person class/working there/etc. 

There is also a local private religious university, but they have not published any of their numbers. 


 

Are all of these numbers for colleges and universities in Texas?  Baylor has had over 900 positive cases since 8/1--other universities are similar, so there has to be more than 995 of the over 1,000,000 college and university students who have tested positive in Texas.

Our society needs kids to be in school.  Our economy sure as hell needs kids in school full time.  Many kids need to be in school, for a wide variety of reasons.   But kids in school is only safe

From my perspective, because of what they've done, crap upon crap happens. Obviously the pandemic itself was out of everyone's control.  But as we have seen around the world, a population's behav

Okay, we can compare the states of the US to the countries of the European Union, and the whole EU to the US.  It's got an even higher population, and it doesn't have a more centralized government tha

The NYT College tracker says there are 8,543 positives at the Texas colleges they're tracking.  This has to mean positives since early August - which would match TAMU's tracking with its NYT record.

 

A&M's dashboard says it.currently has about 300 active cases, with 64k students and 10k faculty and staff.

I'm sorry - I wasn't clear - those numbers are for public schools - not universities.

As for that local university, that had been doing extremely well compared to the others.

My school district just cut back the hours required to be online. It is the same district that had those schedules I posted up thread. K-2 is 9:1130 now instead of until 1:30. Grades 2-5   also cut back with core classes being scheduled as a block at the beginning of the day. It took a couple of week but they have some relieved parents.
