TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — A week after moving to remote learning, the Vigo County School Corporation announced student COVID-19 cases are down for those who were on campus during the infectious period.
Last week, 70 students who tested positive for the virus had been on campus during the infectious period. This week’s numbers show only 46 students with campus contact in the past 14 days have tested positive. Staff cases are up slightly from last week.
Three of the district’s 27 school buildings have no active cases at this time.
The number of students and staff actively quarantined is also down this week.
The district also released information about active positive cases and active quarantines, information which is used internally and by the COVID-19 Task Force to make decisions. These numbers tally cases and quarantines regardless of whether the person was on campus during their infectious period.
The additional data also shows 51 active cases at the elementary level, 11 active cases at the middle school level and 15 active cases at the high school level, when combining student and staff cases.
The school corporation said it will continue to monitor cases among students and staff during remote learning to provide data, receiving data from the Vigo County Health Department as it comes in.
The earliest projected date for students to return to in-person instruction is Dec. 7.
