The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) Emergency Order Under MCL 333.2253 requires school districts to report school associated cases of COVID-19 within 24 hours after being notified by the local health department. A school associated case includes a case of probable or confirmed COVID-19 among students, teachers, staff members, coaches, volunteers, or any other person who was present on school property or at a school function that may result in the transmission or contraction of COVID-19 during an infectious period. Having cases present in school buildings does not indicate that the person’s exposure occurred at school.
As we are notified by the St. Clair County Health Department, the chart below will be updated with the probable and confirmed cases for each of our schools.
- Probable: Rapid-antigen testing results are positive for COVID-19.
- Confirmed: A molecular viral test confirmed positive results for COVID-19.
- Totals: Total number of cases.
The safety and well-being of students and staff is always our priority. Please visit our Covid Preparedness and Response plan – Return to Learn 2020-21 for more information. We also encourage you to visit our Return to School Safely Plans webpage to see the plans for our individual schools.
