WVXU |

In-person attendance across Cincinnati Public Schools continues to drop as the semester continues. COVID-19 cases are also rising amongst students and staff.

Thirty-two students across CPS have tested positive for COVID-19 since returning to in-person learning last month. Since the district began tracking cases in May, 39 in total have tested positive, according to the most recent data available on Nov. 5. At least 600 students have had to isolate across CPS schools due to being in contact with someone who was infected.

Forty-seven staff members have tested positive for COVID-19 since returning to in-person learning; 124 in total have tested positive since CPS began tracking in May. Cincinnati Federation of Teachers president Julie Sellers said CPS was having three positive cases per week, but now they’re identifying that many cases per day.
