POTEET, Texas – All students in the Poteet Independent School District will go back to a remote learning model after district officials say COVID-19 cases in Atascosa County have continued to climb.
To date, the county has had 1,862 cases of the virus with 17 deaths and 137 cases within the last 14 days, according to the county’s website.
The district said staff members will return to work on Monday and will be tested for the virus.
On Nov. 25, the county’s emergency management office announced that the county’s mask mandate ordinance is running in total effect.
“Please continue social distancing, hand sanitizing and wearing face coverings while in public to slow the spread of COVID-19 and keep others around you and yourself safer from being exposed,” the office said. “We are all a team and must work together until this crisis ends.”
