The Coachella Valley Unified School District Friday reported a total of 31 active COVID-19 cases among students, with the largest number at Coachella Valley High School.

According to a COVID-19 active case tracker on the district’s website, all 31 cases were among students and there were no cases among staff across the district’s campuses on Friday.

At Coachella Valley High School, there were seven cases among students, according to the district. Nine of the 23 campuses listed had no cases.

The online tracker is meant to be a “live document” updated regularly with the most current statistics, according to CVUSD spokeswoman Lissette Santiago.

The district began its fall classes on Aug. 12. Mask-wearing is mandatory for all students, staff and visitors while indoors.

Other safety protocols in place include student plexiglass dividers available by family, student or teacher request; physical distancing to the extent possible; regular sanitizing of classrooms and common indoor areas; and making COVID testing available to students and community members.
