HUNTINGTON — Cabell County Schools has launched a new online feature for students, parents and others to access information related to the spread of the novel coronavirus in schools.

The COVID-19 Action Center, which launched several weeks ago and is available on the district’s website at, according to Superintendent Ryan Saxe, allows the public to see how many positive cases have occurred in individual schools and additionally how many students and staff are quarantined due to potential exposure to the virus.

“We’re really trying to be as transparent as we can without giving out any private information so that people understand that, one, people have been contacted if they need to quarantine in those situations, and that we’re trying to be on top of it and communicate as effectively as we can,” Saxe said during the Cabell County Board of Education meeting Tuesday.

Information related to positive cases has been available since the first case in the school system was identified, but Saxe said the recent improvements have made the information easier to understand without invading anyone’s privacy.
