School-associated cases are defined as confirmed cases who have attended, worked in, or visited a K-12 school in-person for more than 15 minutes while symptomatic or within 14 days of their symptom onset. This definition captures cases who were at a school during their exposure period and were potentially exposed at the school. It does not necessarily mean the individual contracted COVID-19 from being exposed to the virus while at school. School-associated cases are identified through interviews with cases by the Local Health Departments. In the data below, counts below 5 are suppressed to protect privacy.
*Note: totals presented in the cumulative count table may not equal the totals presented in the school district table as cases can be associated with more than one school district, and school districts with less than 5 cases have their count suppressed to protect privacy.
**Other/unknown: cases in this category include school volunteers, non-teaching staff, and cases that are school-associated but did not specify their role at the school.
Active Cases: cases reported to public health in the previous two weeks.
Total Cases: all school-associated cases reported in the 2020-2021 school year.
