Defining the Data
Here’s what else you need to know about the data we are providing to you:
In order to respect and protect our students and staff members’ right to privacy, we will not break this information down by student/staff status or any other identifying factors at this time.
Once we have more than a week’s data, we will illustrate changes in numbers on a week-by-week basis through a chart made available on this page.
Under guidance from the Jackson County Health Department, LSR7 individuals are asked to quarantine - stay home from school, activities and/or work - when they are determined to have been exposed to a positive case. Exposure is defined as being within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes per the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
