Continuing my school COVID-19 updates…Carroll County Public Schools (CCPS) is reporting 248 active cases of COVID-19 on September 29th. These numbers are updated every Wednesday of each week. Here is the breakdown of the numbers this week:

  • 241 Students
  • 7 Staff

Note: Numbers reflect active confirmed positive cases for each week. As a result, these students and staff are in quarantine.

CCPS is also now reporting the “Quarantined” number on their dashboard. This week that number is 1,405. Last week that number was 1,221. The week before that number was 803.

Note: Quarantine data reflect the number of individuals required to quarantine because they are a close contact to a Positive COVID-19 case. The quarantine data do not reflect individuals in quarantine because they are COVID positive.


Here is a look at the COVID-19 numbers over the past 4 weeks on the dashboard:
