LONGVIEW, Texas — **EDITOR'S NOTE: The video above is from Oct. 2021.

As Longview ISD students and staff headed back to class this week after winter break, they were met with a yellow alert from the district’s new color-coded system related to virus infection levels.

It was the first time the new system displayed a yellow level, which tells stakeholders throughout the district that COVID-19 infections are beginning to rise and that caution should be taken to stop a potential outbreak.

The Longview ISD Board of Trustees at its Dec. 13 meeting approved the system, which uses the colors green, yellow, orange and red to represent different levels of infection in the district with related protocols in response to those levels. Green is the lowest level of infection and red is the highest.
