Our goal is to share as much information as we are able with those who need to know, while also protecting the privacy of those who have contracted the novel coronavirus. While it is natural to want to know more, we must refrain from speculation and spreading rumors.
Data by school is reported as follows:
- “0” if there are no cases at a building
- “< 5” if there are 1-4 cases at a building
- The actual number of cases will be used if the number of cases is five or greater.
