BCSD Covid-19 Dashboard

COVID-19 Cases for Staff and Students (Face to Face & Virtual)

This dashboard is updated daily during the week (with the exception of holidays). However, these numbers may fluctuate depending on when cases are reported to the District. Because a typical quarantining period is 14 days, this dashboard focuses on a two-week window.

Cases are entered into the dashboard based on the date of the positive test result (asymptomatic cases) or the date when symptoms occurred (symptomatic cases).

It should also be noted that our metrics include both virtual and face-to-face students who test positive for COVID-19 as all cases are reported to us through DHEC. However, schools will only send out notifications when a face-to-face student, staff member, or athlete tests positive as virtual students are not in direct contact with others on school property. 

UPDATE: If the number of cases is less than five per school, it will be denoted as <5. This is in accordance with DHEC’s dashboard for school districts and serves to protect individuals’ privacy as per HIPAA regulations.

District Covid-19 Quarantines (Students & Staff)

Weekly quarantine information will be reported Monday on the dashboard.  This information will be provided by our nurses for the recent school week.

For example: The quarantine information reported on Monday, Jan. 25 includes Saturday, Jan. 16 through Friday, Jan. 22.

It should also be noted that quarantines are not positive cases. Quarantines are associated with individuals who have been deemed close-contacts of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in or outside of the school environment.

If the number of quarantines is less than five per school, it will be denoted as <5. This is in accordance with DHEC’s dashboard for school districts and serves to protect individuals’ privacy as per HIPAA regulations.

School nurses and/or DHEC subsequently initiate appropriate contact tracing. Depending on who was notified first, there may be some initial discrepancies between our district’s dashboard and DHEC’s site.
