COVID-19 Tracking Dashboard
All confirmed COVID-19 incidents related to Campbell Union High School District sites and offices will be posted to this page. For the purposes of this dashboard please note the following:
- CUHSD is reporting all positive confirmed cases of individuals who came onto our campuses during their infectious period.
- During the school year the dashboard will be updated once a week on Fridays.
- All cases are confidential. Information regarding individuals with COVID-19 symptoms, close contacts with someone who is COVID-19 positive, or individuals who have tested positive for the coronavirus, is sensitive, confidential information. Names will not be released.
- CUHSD does not wait to notify close contacts upon the initial report of a positive case. However, we do wait for official confirmation from the Santa Clara County Public Health Department before listing the case on this dashboard. This could result in a delay of cases appearing on this dashboard or a discrepancy between the number of notifications received and the actual number of confirmed cases (when the case is not confirmed positive by public health).
|Responding to Suspected or Confirmed Cases|
We follow the protocols outlined in the Santa Clara County Public Health Department (SCCPHD) and the California Department of Public Health Guidelines for responding to suspected or confirmed cases.
Once the district learns of an individual who has tested positive at a school site or office, these steps will be followed:
- Isolate individuals if present and advise of any required self-quarantine
- Consult with Santa Clara County Public Health Department
- Clean and treat any affected areas
- Contact identification within CUSHD to determine close contacts*
- Immediately notify anyone within CUHSD determined to have had close contact* and advise of any required self-quarantine
- Notify staff at the site of the confirmed case
- Follow any additional recommendations from the Santa Clara County Public Health Department
*Close contact is defined as someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period starting from 2 days before symptom onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days prior to the test specimen collection) until the time the patient is isolated.
|Considerations for School Closures|
Once schools reopen, schools are not required to close again if the county sees an increase in case rates or positive testing percentages. However, individual school closure is recommended based on the number of cases, the percentage of the teachers/students/staff that are positive for COVID-19, and following consultation with the local health officer.
|Report COVID-19 Health and Safety Concerns|
CUHSD strives to maintain all health and safety protocols at our school campuses and offices. We are better together and we encourage anyone who sees a potential COVID-19 hazard (as outlined in our COVID-19 Safety Plan) to alert a school administrator or submit an anonymous concern.
Frequently Asked Questions
|Frequently Asked Questions|
What happens if a student comes to school ill?
A student who is ill and exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 will be isolated in a designated area on campus until a parent or guardian arrives to pick them up.
Will they be required to be tested for COVID-19?
Per public health department, a student or staff member with symptoms will be required to get a COVID-19 test as soon as possible or provide a medical note before returning. If the test is negative, they are to remain home until at least 72 hours after resolution of fever and improvement of symptoms. If a student or staff test positive, they will receive instructions to isolate for 10 days and 3 days with no symptoms. Close contacts at school will be identified and notified with public health department instructions for testing and quarantine; If an elementary class is affected, the entire classroom will be quarantined. A public health department "general advisory" letter may be given (template letters are in development by the department). Close contact is defined by California Department of Public Health as within 6 feet for 15 or more minutes.
Will parents and students be made aware if someone on campus tests positive for COVID-19?
California Department of Public Health guidance states that schools should document/track incidents of possible exposure and notify local health officials. While maintaining confidentiality as required under FERPA and state and federal law related to privacy of educational and employee records, if a student or staff member tests positive for COVID-19, close contacts at school will be identified and notified with public health department instructions for testing and quarantine. Close contact is defined by California Department of Public Health as within 6 feet for 15 or more minutes.
What happens if a staff member or student tests positive? Will school be closed for 14 days? Is there a procedure in place for quarantining in the event that a person on campus tests positive?
If a student or staff member tests positive for COVID-19, close contacts at school will be identified and notified with public health department instructions for testing and quarantine. Close contact is defined by California Department of Public Health as within 6 feet for 15 or more minutes. We will follow the SCCPHD guidelines for closures. Each scenario has different circumstances. Depending on the situation, a class will be isolated until cleared to return to school. The teacher will continue to provide lessons via distance learning. The SCCPHD will assist school districts in the process.
What happens in the case that a family member of a student or staff member tests positive?
If it is confirmed that a student or staff member has been in close contact with a positive case, they would follow the public health department guidelines, including home quarantine for at least 14 days. A student who is self-isolating will work with their teacher to complete coursework from home.
What happens to teaching and learning if an entire classroom or school needs to close?
The teachers and students would transition into an online distance learning model until they can return to the classroom. SCUSD will have a plan and teacher training in place for this scenario.
Will truancy limits (10% of missed days) remain the same in event that a student is sent home for a minimum of 14 days due to COVID-19 exposure?
An absence of this type will not count towards truancy. Students with needs for extended absences will be supported on a case-by-case basis.
How do I report my positive results or close contact exposure?
You will report directly to your site administrator via email or phone call. Our reporting protocols follow all HIPAA guidelines and we may release information to public health officials as required.
I heard there was a positive case at my school but I have not received a notice, what do I do?
If there is a confirmed positive case at your school, the case and all close contacts will be notified. If you did not receive a letter, you were not determined to be a close contact.
I received a case or close contact letter but the number on the dashboard has not been updated. Why?
CUHSD does not wait to notify close contacts upon the initial report of a positive case. However, we do update this on a weekly basis on Fridays and may not have updated this dashboard.
Where can I find up-to-date information about confirmed cases at CUHSD?
All confirmed COVID-19 incidents related to CUHSD sites and offices will be posted to our COVID-19 Tracking Dashboard webpage.
