TERRE HAUTE, IN— The Vigo County School Corporation has updated their COVID-19 Dashboard. Three of the district’s 27 brick and mortar schools have no active cases at this time.
· 46 student positives with campus contact in the last 14 days (down from 70 last week)
· 48 staff positives with campus contact in the last 14 days (up from 38 last week)
· 431 students actively quarantined (down from 883 last week)
· 98 staff actively quarantined (down from 114 last week)
The district also released information about active positive cases and active quarantines, information which is used internally and by the COVID-19 Task Force to make decisions. These numbers tally cases and quarantines regardless of whether the person was on campus during their infectious period.
The additional data also shows 51 active cases at the elementary level, 11 active cases at the middle school level, and 15 active cases at the high school level, when combining student and staff cases.
The district will continue to monitor cases among students and staff during remote learning to provide data, receiving data from the Vigo County Health Department as it comes in. As all students are engaged in remote learning, families and media will continue to be notified of cases that were in contact with schools during that person’s infectious period and while school was in session. This lag in notification does not necessarily mean a lag in quarantine or isolation: this can sometimes happen because a person was tested and had to wait several days for the results of a test.
The district will continue to work with the Vigo County Health Department to notify families about the need to quarantine as a result of close contact.
