EPS announces plans for start of school as county back in 'low risk' for COVID-19

  • Updated
  • 6 min to read

ENID, Okla. — Nine counties, including Garfield County, were removed from the orange, "moderate risk" for COVID-19 map that is released weekly by the Oklahoma State Department of Health.

Garfield County is now in the yellow, or "low risk," category for the week, according to OSDH. The lowering comes the same day as 24 cases were reported in Garfield County, bringing the cumulative total to 420, with 102 listed as active, according to OSDH data. The "date a case is reported" by the OSDH is not the same as the "date of onset of symptoms," which is used to calculate the average risk categories, according to OSDH.

Friday's "low risk" designation prompted Enid Public Schools to announce all students can attend classes at their buildings when the new school year opens Thursday, Aug. 13. If the county had stayed in the orange, "moderate risk" category, half of the students would have been required to stay home during the week on an A/B scheduled to lower class sizes for more social distancing.

"As a result of returning to Yellow, EPS will conduct in-person instruction for ALL students who have chosen that option," Dr. Darrell Floyd, EPS superintendent, said in a letter on the district's website Friday morning.

He added that in-person instruction will continue until Aug. 21 regardless of the Aug. 14 risk assessment from OSDH. Further, the Board of Education will discuss an ongoing plan that will provide more flexibility for parents, he said.

"Also, at our August 17th school board meeting we will look at the possibility of making revisions to our current plan that, if approved, would: provide more flexibility, provide longer periods of time for parents to plan ahead more appropriately — with more advanced notice (rather than a week at a time), and would take effect on August 24th."

Coming in Sunday's Enid News & Eagle

Working parents of school-aged children are facing some tough decisions as many districts, including Enid Public Schools, revert to alternative schedules to slow the spread of COVID-19.

EPS previously announced it will follow the color-coded alert OSDH system to determine instructional setting, health protocols and activities.

While at the yellow level, there will be in-person instruction, with masks required in all indoor spaces, according to the website. Pre-kindergarten through third-grade students will be allowed to remove masks in the classroom at the teacher’s discretion. 

Other protocols the district will follow include limiting building and campus visitors, following health orders and protocols such as screenings, social distancing and hand washing and limiting buildings and campuses to public events, the website states.

COVID-19 testing

State Health Department officials are encouraging Oklahomans to get tested for COVID-19, saying recently that due to adequate supplies, residents no longer need to exhibit symptoms or report exposure to someone with the virus to get in line for testing.

Free testing for COVID-19 is ongoing at the Garfield County and other state Health Departments. Testing is by appointment only for Blaine County, 521 W. 4th, Watonga, (580) 623-7977; Garfield County, 2501 S. Mercer, Enid, (580) 233-0650; Grant County, 115 N. Main, Medford, (580) 395-2906; Kingfisher County, 124 E. Sheridan, courthouse annex room #101, Kingfisher, (405) 375-3008; Major County, 501 E. Broadway, Fairview, (580) 227-3362; Noble County, 300 Fir St., Perry, (580) 336-2257; Woods County, 511 Barnes St., Alva, (580) 327-3192; and Woodward County, 1631 Texas Ave., Woodward, (580) 256-6416. For a full list of county drive-through testing, go to https://coronavirus.health.ok.gov/drive-thru-testing. Some health department also advise the public to check their Facebook pages for more information regarding testing.

COVID-19 signs

Emergency warning signs for COVID-19 are trouble breathing, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, new confusion or inability to arouse, bluish lips or face, according to the CDC. More information can be found at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html.

Those with symptoms of COVID-19 should call ahead to local emergency rooms. Those with minor symptoms should contact their regular physicians.
