COVID-19 Reporting Data
Note: CCSD will resume COVID-19 weekly reporting when the 2021-22 school year begins in August 2021.
Every Friday, the CCSD website is updated with the total number of COVID-19 positive cases as well as related quarantines at CCSD schools and facilities. Now that students have returned to in-person learning, as of March 15th, this data does not include students or staff who have not been on a CCSD campus.While making this data public, the district will continue to respect our staff and students'/families’ privacy. The personal health information of employees is exempt from disclosure under the Open Records Act, pursuant to OCGA 50-18-72 (a)(21). Similarly, personally identifiable information related to students is exempt under OCGA 50-18-72 (a)(1) and (a)(37) of the Open Records Act.However, in the interest of public health and transparency, the district compiles COVID-19 data devoid of any personally identifiable information and provides it to our stakeholders in a manner consistent with applicable privacy standards related to aggregate, de-identified data.
The Clarke County School District will individually notify employees or students who have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. In accordance with current Georgia Department of Public Health guidelines, a "close contact" is defined as a person who has been within six feet for fifteen minutes or more of a COVID-positive individual beginning two days before either the onset of symptoms or the date of testing.
