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, Oct. 12, 2021 (I am guessing they forgot to change this date this week…should read October 19, 2021), there are 726 students and 30 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. See below for daily and 7-day totals of positive case numbers.
Here are the numbers reported last week (845 students and 23 staff members in quarantine)
