The WUSD COVID-19 Dashboard ensures our community receives the most recent numbers of verified COVID-19 student and staff positive cases and quarantines throughout the WUSD. Confirmed cases are individuals with a lab-verified positive test. The information shown is collected and reported by WUSD staff and may differ slightly from County and State Department of Health reports.
 
As of October 18th, WUSD will transition to updating the dashboard weekly on Wednesdays by 5:00 PM. Cases reported may be a combination of in-person, virtual academy, independent study, and non-school locations.
 
If a school site's in-person attendance total is listed as "null," it means the data is in the process of being collected and will appear during the next update cycle.
How to interpret the dashboard

How to interpret the dashboard

The Data -  Dashboard data updates are a snapshot of only the newest numbers received since the last update. Cases reported may be a combination of in-person, virtual academy, independent study, and non-school locations.
 
Cumulative Data -  This is a running tally of all-time cases and exposures reported since October 13, 2021. This number will continue to grow but it is NOT an indication of active cases in our schools.
 
The Data Source - Data comes directly from each school site. Our school principals or assistant principals are the on-site COVID lead for the entire school, working closely with all individuals involved in a particular incident performing detailed contact tracing as outlined by Yolo County Health.
 
Cumulative Totals from Feb. 2020 to Oct. 2021 - These numbers provide a historical foundation for the number of cases reported by WUSD schools between February 2020 and October 2021. During that time period, WUSD schools were either closed and offering limited in-person support via learning centers or WUSD schools were operating in a hybrid instructional model.
 
NOTE: Cases reported may be a combination of in-person, virtual academy, independent study, and non-school locations.
Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Who in my child's class/school/team has tested positive?

We are unable to release individual health information. Per privacy guidelines, no additional information can be shared regarding the COVID-19-positive individual. If you have healthcare concerns, please contact your family’s healthcare provider.  

How do I know if my child or I am impacted?

Unless you have been otherwise notified, your child has NOT been identified as a close contact and does NOT need to quarantine at home or be tested. A “close contact” is someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over 24 hours starting from 2 days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, two days before test specimen collection) until the time the patient is isolated.

What if my child begins to feel ill?

Parents should continue to monitor their students each day for symptoms of COVID-19, which could include fever, loss of taste or smell, headache, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, sore throat, fatigue, congestion or runny nose, body aches, and/or nausea. If your child develops COVID-19 symptoms, please contact your child’s healthcare provider as soon as possible. Please contact the school if your child tests positive for COVID-19.

What happens if my child's teacher is quarantined or isolated?

This information will be shared with parents in affected classes. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), quarantine is used to keep someone who might have been exposed to COVID-19 away from others. Individuals in quarantine may not always be COVID-19-positive. Until your child's teacher returns, a qualified substitute teacher will continue to support the class and monitor the students’ progress. We will also work with the teacher and district staff to ensure instruction continues.  

How is "close contact" defined?

Someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period* starting from 2 days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days prior to test specimen collection) until the time the patient is isolated.

How is "cohort" defined?

A cohort is a stable group with fixed membership that stays together for all courses and activities (e.g., lunch, recess, etc.) and avoids contact with other persons or cohorts. Examples of a cohort include a classroom or day care group.

How is "isolation" defined?

Isolation is used to separate those infected with a contagious disease from people who are not infected. Isolation restricts the movement of ill persons to help stop the spread of certain diseases. Instructions for home isolation can be found here:

How is "quarantine" defined?

Quarantine is used to separate and restrict the movement of persons who were exposed to a contagious disease in case they become infected. These people may have been exposed to a disease and not know it, or they may have the disease but do not show symptoms. Instructions for home quarantine can be found here:
