The Howard County Public School System (HCPSS) is providing quarantine numbers every Wednesday by 11 AM. Here is the latest information reported:
As of Tuesday, Sept. 14, 2021, there are 952 students and 29 staff members in quarantine due to a positive COVID-19 test or as a close contact. These numbers will be updated every Wednesday by 11 AM.
Please note that close contact or quarantine does not indicate those students or staff have tested positive for COVID-19.
Here is a look at the current HCPSS COVID-19 dashboard:
68 cases reported over the past week. 0 cases of “a student who participates in athletics” reported over the past week.
This might be an interesting dataset to track weekly for a while.

That’s a lot of students in quarantine.
In some ways it is, but it is also roughly 1.7% of the students in HCPSS.
