Howard County Public School System reports there are 977 students in quarantine due to a positive COVID-19 test or as a close contact

I am still getting back into the grove with reporting COVID-19 numbers from the Howard County Public School System. Here is the latest information reported on January 19th:

As of Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2022, there are 977 students and 209 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 is a look at the current HCPSS COVID-19 dashboard:

The 316 total reported cases this week is a drop from the 591 cases reported last week.

Still no history from HCPSS on their COVID-19 dashboard…so here is a look at past numbers reported by HCPSS tracked by Scott E’s Blog:
