Continuing my school COVID-19 updates…Carroll County Public Schools (CCPS) is reporting 199 active cases of COVID-19 on November 17th. These numbers are updated every Wednesday of each week. Here is the breakdown of the numbers this week:
- 190 Students
- 9 Staff
Note: Numbers reflect active confirmed positive cases for each week. As a result, these students and staff are in quarantine.
CCPS is also reporting the “Quarantined” number on their dashboard. This week that number is 558. Last week that number was 586. The week before that number was 508. I think it is safe to say the quarantine numbers are holding steady for now.
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 11 weeks on the dashboard:
Not listed on the dashboard: On September 17th CCPS had 803 students in quarantine
The number of “CCPS Positive Totals” has now risen for 4 consecutive weeks (although not significantly from last weeks reported numbers). Quarantine numbers dropped slightly this week from the previous week.
