Update: Starting Thursday, March 10, 2022, South Washington County Schools (SoWashCo Schools) will no longer update the COVID-19 dashboard. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has adjusted its COVID-19 guidance to focus on monitoring hospitalizations and severe cases instead of general case rates.
SoWashCo Schools will continue to monitor our COVID-19 case rates and absences due to illness and make adjustments based on our criteria for COVID-19 decision making.
On Monday, Feb. 23, SoWashCo Schools adjusted communication protocols when notifying families of COVID-19 exposures:
- Elementary schools will notify families when there are two or more COVID-19 cases in a single classroom
- Middle and high schools will notify families when 2% or more of the students in a school test positive for COVID-19
