HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Houston ISD says one of its elementary schools will be transitioning to virtual learning for the next two days due to COVID-19.

According to the school district, R. Martinez Elementary on Market Street and East Houston will be transitioning to virtual learning on Nov. 17 and Nov. 18 as a precautionary measure due to confirmed cases of the coronavirus reported on campus.

The decision to close the campus was made by the district's health and medical services in consultation with the Houston Health Department, HISD said.
