** Please note: the COVID Dashboard was on hiatus during Winter Break (12/23/21-1/7/22) and Spring Break (3/21-25/2022). **
Following a review of our past year’s COVID dashboard as well as researching our neighboring district’s dashboards, we have updated District 15’s dashboard this year. Our goal in keeping the COVID dashboard is to provide our community with both timely and pertinent information regarding COVID-19 in District 15.
In an effort to streamline the dashboard, only positive cases will be displayed. Last year, the dashboard was updated daily; this year, the dashboard will have cases added as they are processed by our health services team. The dashboard will display District and school data and will differentiate elementary and junior high school cases in a weekly summary. The dashboard will not be updated on the weekends.
We removed the close contact data as that information is more relevant for contact tracing purposes internally. If a close contact is later identified as COVID-positive, the positive case numbers will reflect that additional case.
We will add SHIELD results once we start screening for those who have opted in.
