COVID-19 Dashboard

This Dashboard will be updated twice a week, typically on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.

The purpose of this data is to provide District families and staff with a transparent summary of COVID-19-related positive cases and exposures. This data is updated regularly based on information shared with the District from students, their families, staff, Washington University physicians, and/or the St. Louis County Department of Health. The data reflects reported cases of staff and students.

Definitions:

  • Positive Case: A student or staff member has been tested and received a report confirming that they have COVID-19. These individuals will be isolated for a minimum of 10 days.

  • Quarantine: Individuals who have not tested positive but have been identified through contact tracing and/or directed by the St. Louis County Department of Health to quarantine due to exposure or recent travel. Fully vaccinated individuals determined to be close contacts do not have to quarantine unless they begin to feel symptoms related to COVID-19. Unvaccinated individuals who are close contacts are typically instructed to quarantine for 10 days to monitor for symptoms.

What happens when a staff member or student tests positive for COVID-19?

In the event a U. City student or staff member tests positive for COVID-19, specific school and administrative staff with training in contact tracing will work with school administration, physicians with Washington University and the St. Louis County Department of Health to provide communication and guidance to students, parents and staff letting them know what steps they may need to take and the potential need to isolate, quarantine, etc.
