In an effort to be transparent with our parents and staff, Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools posts school-based systemwide active COVID numbers each week. The data is not cumulative and will be refreshed weekly based on new positive and close contact cases; as well as individuals entering and exiting quarantine. The data represents anyone who is out of the building related to being COVID positive or on quarantine. We are not including any data for employees or students who have not been in the building. The COVID positive data is updated each week to reflect new cases of students and staff who have tested positive during that week. The quarantine numbers are reflective of anyone who has been placed on quarantine due to an exposure to someone who has tested positive either in the school setting or in the community.
How does SCCPSS handle a school-based positive case?
If an SCCPSS teacher or student tests positive for COVID19, we will notify the local health department and contact tracing procedures will begin. If the tracing impacts our school family, we will notify the appropriate parents in accordance with privacy requirements. The District has a communication plan in the event an employee or student becomes ill at school, tests positive for the virus or is exposed to someone who has tested positive. Parents must keep children who are ill at home. Students who get sick at school will be referred to the school nurse and parents will be contacted.
