PONCA CITY  — The Ponca City Public School District is aware of a possible COVID-19 case. 

The subject in question has not received a positive confirmation of testing results, but to err on the side of caution to protect our students and staff, all indoor summer extra-curricular activities in Ponca City Public School facilities will be suspended through the holiday weekend until July 6.

However, outdoor activities may continue with the outlined safety guidelines in the PCPS Summer Activities Phase-in Plan. If there is a confirmed positive result, the Kay County Health Department will notify PCPS and a contact tracing investigation will begin. 

On Monday the Oklahoma State Department of Health reported a new case of COVID-19 in Newkirk increasing the total number of cases reported in Kay County to 92. There are 17 current cases in Kay County. (see story)
