DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - Two students were sent home from New Brockton High School after experiencing COVID-19 like symptoms. That’s according a release sent out by the Coffee County EMA office for the Coffee County Board of Education.

30 other students were sent home per the Alabama Department of Public Health guidelines for students exposed to a possible COVID-19 case. Each of these students are non-symptomatic.

The Coffee County School System has a COVID-19 response plan that has been implemented for the school year.
