    TARRANT COUNTY VACCINE PORTAL

  • FWISD Requests Employees Testing Positive, Exposed to COVID-19 Report Case to District

    District employees must report whether they’ve tested positive for COVID-19 or have been in close contact with a person with a confirmed virus case, per the Fort Worth ISD COVID-19 screening protocols.  

    Employees must contact their campus supervisor or campus principal. To the extent legally possible, the District will protect personal identifiable information from public disclosure at all times.

    “The Fort Worth Independent School District (‘FWISD’) seeks to protect the health, safety, and well-being of all its employees and students. The information … is being requested by FWISD to properly assess the level of risk and potential exposure to yourself and others,” according to the authorization form.    

    In the event an employee has a COVID-19 case confirmed by testing or has been exposed to someone who has tested positive for the virus, they must follow all isolation and quarantine instructions from FWISD in accordance with local health authorities

    As a service to our employees the Fort Worth ISD is consolidating information about COVID-19 vaccine opportunities. 

    Tarrant County Public Health offers local vaccine clinics on a regular basis. You can learn more by visiting their website.
