MONTGOMERY, Alabama (AP) — Alabama public schools reported more than 700 cases of COVID-19 among students, teachers and employees in the last week. 

The Alabama Department of Public Health and the Alabama State Department of Education on Friday debuted a dashboard with the data. It shows the number of cases reported by school systems to the state, but not numbers by individual schools.

State Health Officer Scott Harris said the tool can help parents track the state of the pandemic in their child's school system.
