COVID-19 Case Tracker Data

Each Friday the LPCSC will post the number of student and staff COVID 19 cases that were confirmed for all schools in the corporation that week. A cumulative number will also be posted which will date back to the start of the school year for students- August 24, 2020. Each school that reports cases to the corporation also reports those cases to the Indiana State Department of Health.

Please keep in mind when reviewing the case data that when a positive case is reported to the school, we will be working with the local health department and a contact tracing team to identify any individuals that were in "close contact" with the individual that tested positive.  Close contact is defined as being within 6 feet of someone for 15 minutes or longer.

If it is determined that students or staff members were in close contact with a COVID 19 positive test case, we will follow the health department's process for contact tracing and notify any close contact's parent/guardian. Anyone determined to be in close contact will need to be quarantined per the guidelines of the Indiana State Department of Health.  Anyone testing positive must follow the health department's guidance on quarantine.

Due to privacy laws, including HIPAA and FERPA, the district cannot divulge further information regarding staff members or students that test positive. Should numbers of cases within a school or the corporation rise above acceptable levels, state and local health departments will advise the corporation regarding necessary interventions and or closings. In the interim, the guidance is to look at each case individually and quarantine anyone that is determined to have been within close contact.
