COVID-19 Dashboard

The following information is provided in the table below:
  • Positive COVID-19 cases in the White River School District within the last 14 days
  • Current number of individuals who have been identified as a close contact to a positive COVID-19 and quarantined in accordance with Tacoma Pierce County Health Department Guidelines. This number also includes those awaiting test results and quarantined out of an abundance of caution.
    • Close contacts are defined as those within a cohort AND within one seat of proximity on a bus, in a classroom, in a cafeteria, or a contact that has spent time nearby in a recess activity.
    • Example: If a student is confirmed positive with COVID-19, close contacts will be identified as follows:
        • Classroom: student in front, behind, on each side = up to 4 close contacts if all seats are occupied
        • Bus (if applicable): students in same row, one row behind, one row in front, same row across aisle and row across aisle at each diagonal = up to 11 if all seats are occupied (Note: if appropriate seating is not maintained, students from entire bus could be quarantined)
        • Cafeteria (if applicable): student in front, behind, on each side and at each diagonal = up to 4 close contacts if all seats are occupied
  • Number of students in a specific building during a regular school day minus the number of close contacts who are in quarantine out of an abundance of caution.
  • Number of staff in a specific building during a regular school day minus the number of close contacts who are in quarantine out of an abundance of caution.
  • When an active case is confirmed, it is added simultaneously to both the "past 14 days" column and "cumulative" column. 
 
The White River School District will communicate in writing to all students within a school if there is a positive case in that school. Parents will receive one of three communications that will be sent via email or phone call, depending on their child's proximity to a person who tested positive: (1) to those identified as a close contact of the person who tested positive, (2) to those within the same classroom but not identified as a close contact of the person who tested positive, and (3) to those within that school, but not in the same classroom nor identified as a close contact of the person who tested positive.
 
This table will be updated each morning to reflect yesterday's data.  This table is best viewed on a laptop or monitor.
