As of Tuesday, September 22, the WFISD COVID-19 tracker lists one Wichita Falls High School student tested positive and a Southern Hills Elementary staff member tested positive.

According to the Wichita Falls–Wichita County Public Health District, the positive case at Wichita Falls High School is considered “low-risk” and low exposure to the campus.
