This rate includes positive student COVID-19 cases. The student quarantine rate column indicates the percentage of students absent due to the need to be quarantined because they were a close contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19. The last updated column indicates the last time the District made an update to the record. Influenza-like illness rates and student quarantine rates are usually updated on Fridays and calculated as a weekly average for that week.
