COVID-19 Tracking Dashboard

Confirmed Cases Districtwide and by Site
Use the dropdown to filter by hovering over the site and clicking on the "Only" button.

Dashboard Process

  • Once the district learns of an individual who has tested positive at a school site or office, these steps will be followed:

    • Isolate individuals if present and advise of any required self-quarantine
    • Consult with Santa Clara County Public Health Department (SCCPHD)
    • Clean and treat any affected areas
    • Contact identification within SCUSD to determine close contacts*
    • Immediately notify anyone within SCUSD determined to have had close contact* and advise of any required self-quarantine
    • Notify anyone who may have been in proximity, such as in the classroom, school, or office
    • Add positive cases to the district's dashboard**
    • Follow any additional recommendations from the Santa Clara County Public Health Department

    *Close contact is 0-6 feet of a positive case while infectious for a period of more than 15 minutes cumulative within a 24-hour period, regardless of face coverings.

Dashboard Data

  • All confirmed COVID-19 incidents related to Santa Clara Unified school sites and offices will be posted to this dashboard webpage.

    For the purposes of this dashboard: 

    • SCUSD is counting all positive confirmed cases that were on campus during their infectious period

    Other important notes related to dashboard data:

    • The dashboard is updated each business day as we are notified of confirmed cases and issue contact notifications.
    • Cases are added to the dashboard as a final step after all contact notifications have been sent.
    • Cases appear on the dashboard using the date that the test was administered; This often results in a case appearing on the dashboard in a different week than the test results were received and contact notices were sent. 
    • Information regarding individuals with COVID-19 symptoms, close contacts with someone who is COVID-19 positive, or individuals who have tested positive for the coronavirus, is sensitive, confidential information and names will not be released to the public.
    • SCUSD does not wait to notify close contacts upon the initial report of a positive case. However, we do wait for official confirmation from SCCPHD before listing the case on this dashboard. This could result in a delay of cases appearing on this dashboard or a discrepancy between the number of contact notifications received by a community and the actual number of confirmed cases appearing on the dashboard (when the case is not confirmed positive by SCCPHD).

Quarantine and Test Results Flow Charts

  • We follow the protocols outlined in the Santa Clara County Public Health Department (SCCPHD) guidelines for various covid related scenarios: 

    * 9/1/2021: This flow chart is being modified by the SCCPHD to remove "quarantine immediately while awaiting test results" under the close contacts on the decision tree.

Considerations for School Closure

  • Individual school closure is recommended based on the number of cases, the percentage of the teacher/students/staff that are positive for COVID-19, and following consultation with the Local Health Officer.  The following are the general parameters of when a school closure may occur.

    • Individual school closure may be indicated when an outbreak occurs in 25% or more of a classroom  within a 14 day period or when at least 3 outbreaks (3 positive cases are defined as 1 outbreak) have occurred in the school AND more than 5% of the school population is infected
    • The Local Health Officer may also determine school closure is warranted for other reasons, including results from public health investigation or other local epidemiological data.

    However, after each instance of a positive COVID-19 test, local county public health is contacted and they will advise on school closure on a case-by-case basis.

    Schools may typically reopen after 14 days and the following have occurred:

    • Cleaning and disinfection
    • Public health investigation
    • Consultation with the local public health department

    A superintendent may close a school district if 25% or more of schools in a district have closed due to COVID-19 within 14 days, and in consultation with the local public health department. 

    Districts may typically reopen after 14 days, in consultation with the local public health department.
