Local News

WEST TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) —The Vigo County School Corp. released a new COVID-19 Dashboard Thursday with intentions to give a weekly snapshot of COVID-19 data in local schools.

The dashboard will be updated every Wednesday moving forward, a news release said. The data and dashboard was built with guidance from the COVID-19 Advisory Group.

“At this time, no school is in danger of moving to virtual learning, due to low numbers of positive cases and quarantines among teaching staff,” VCSC Director of Communications Bill Riley said.

As of noon Thursday, the new dashboard says there are currently 174 active positive cases amongst students and 297 students actively quarantining in the district.

However, Riley noted most reported cases displayed on the dashboard were household contact infections.
