The latest Covid-19 data for public schools was released Wednesday evening, Sept. 30 by the Department of State Health Services. The latest data covers the period between Sept. 21 and Sept. 27.
Cases in this report are defined as any staff member or student who participates in any on-campus activity that is test-confirmed COVID-19 of which a public school is notified. Because data is self-reported by schools, it may not be up to date. To protect individual privacy, case counts will be suppressed for any school district (such as Harrold) that has fewer than 50 students enrolled on campus. All data are provisional and subject to change. Corrections may lead to data being updated with more accurate or complete information.
