COVID-19 Dashboard

Xổ số thành phố trực tiếpDuring the Board of Education meeting on Thursday, August 6th, district leaders reiterated Huntsville City Schools' ongoing commitment to transparency regarding positive COVID-19 cases that impact HCS schools and facilities.  Initially, the district launched a facility impact page to note school buildings and facilities impacted by individuals exhibiting symptoms or positive test results for the virus. 

This new COVID-19 Dashboard replaces and enhances that information by providing not only the most recent dates facilities were impacted by COVID-19, but also the total number of quarantined individuals and positive cases for each school and for the district at large.

Positive cases are addressed and assessed on an individual basis, and HCS personnel will respond to these situations by following guidance from the Alabama Department of Public Health.  Some situations and conditions may warrant a school closure and temporary transition to remote learning.  In the event this occurs, those closed school facilities will be notated below.

Standardized safety procedures which will occur for each positive case may include: the impacted individual self-quarantining, disinfecting at the school or facility, and any persons with a direct exposure to a person testing positive for COVID-19 self-isolating per ADPH guidelines from the last date of exposure.  A direct exposure is classified as any person within 6 feet of a person for at least 15 minutes. In the event a student, staff, or faculty member presents with major symptoms generally associated with COVID-19, the school will respond as if it were a positive COVID-19 test.

In the event of a positive case, all persons with potential exposure will be notified directly.
