TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Since switching to remote learning on Nov. 19, fewer students and staff are testing positive for coronavirus, the Vigo County School Corporation’s updated COVID-19 Dashboard reported Wednesday.
The Dashboard shows:
- 3 student positives with campus contact in the last 14 days (down from 14 last week)
- 18 staff positives with campus contact in the last 14 days (down from 30 last week)
- 106 students actively quarantined (up from 74 last week)
- 55 staff actively quarantined (down from 169 last week)
Twelve of the district’s 27 brick and mortar schools have no active cases at this time. Remote learning has been extended to the end of the semester, Dec. 18.
The district is continuing to attempt to track active cases and quarantines for schools during remote learning—even though students are at home—to provide data on how COVID-19 is impacting the school community.
The data also shows 18 active cases at the elementary level, six active cases at the middle school level, and 11 active cases at the high school level, when combining student and staff cases.
The district says it will continue to monitor cases among students and staff during remote learning to provide information and will receive data from the Vigo County Health Department as it comes in.
